Psychiatric Diagnosis 5TH Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Well known for providing a thorough yet concise view of the natural history of psychiatric disorders, this popular text has been completely updated chapter by chapter in this Fifth Edition. Terminology has been revised in line with DSM IV and many recent genetic and neurobiological findings have been included. Some of the areas where there is new material are: genetics and neuroimaging of schizophrenia, combined use of benzodiazepines and neuroleptics in treating schizophrenia, development of antisocial personality, neuropsychological changes in AIDS patients, genetics of Alzheimer's disease, prognosis for delirium in the elderly, and epidemiologyu of anorexia nervosa. As in previous editions, each chapter systematically covers the definition, historical background, epidemiology, clinical picture, natural history, complications, family studies, differential diagnosis, and clinical management of each disorder. The use of follow-up studies to classify psychiatric disorders is emphasized. No other text provides such a lucid, well-documented and critically sound overview of the major syndromes in psychiatry. Medical students and psychiatric residents will continue to find Psychiatric Diagnosis a unique guide to the field.

Synopsis:

'This is an updated, expanded version of a book which had already established a secure place among the best written, most informative, critically sound texts on psychiatric diagnosis.... Obligatory reading for any serious student or worker in the field.'

Synopsis:

This concise compendium of current knowledge in psychiatry--highly acclaimed and widely used in its earlier editions--has now been brought fully up to date. Goodwin and Guze have included a new chapter on psychiatric examination and a wealth of recent information from clinical,

epidemiological, and neurochemical studies relevant to psychiatric disorders. They have also incorporated DSM-III-R criteria into this edition. The authors continue to demonstrate the usefulness of diagnosis based on specifically defined criteria in planning treatment and predicting outcome of

illness. Statements are well documented with reference to the psychiatric literature, and the bibliography at the end of each chapter is extensive.
