About the Authors
  • Liaison psychiatry, the recognition and management of psychiatric problems in the general medical setting, is an essential component of many doctors' work. Depression, anxiety and somatization disorders occur in about 50% of cases presented to primary care physicians. The Handbook of Liaison Psychiatry was first published in 2007 and is a comprehensive reference book for this fast-growing subspecialty. A team of experts in the field cover the full range of issues, from establishing a service and outlining the commonest problems encountered in general hospitals and primary care, to assessment and treatment guidelines, working with specific units within the hospital setting, disaster planning and legal-ethical considerations. It will be essential reading for doctors and other professionals concerned with the psychological health of patients in acute general hospitals and in primary care.

    • Comprehensive reference book for a rapidly growing subspecialty
    • Written by a team of experts in the field
    • Broad-ranging, from practical guidelines for setting up services and managing the most common problems to disaster preparedness

    Reviews & endorsements

    Review of the hardback: 'The book could have been categorised by symptom, such as pain or depression. However, this would have led to a lot of repetition. … It has an excellent section on establishing a service, which is amusingly pragmatic. I also liked the 'How to do a referral guide', with carefully laid out steps that need to be taken. … There is an excellent index … All budding and established liaison psychiatrists should have this manual and medical libraries should stock it.' British Medical Journal

    Review of the hardback: 'It will be essential reading for liaison psychiatrists, liaison nurses, other members of the mental health team and services managers. It enthusiastically conveys the excitement and breadth of this developing subspecialty.' Clinical Medicine Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London

    Review of the hardback: 'The setup and the extensive index makes it a very useful book for the practising CL psychiatrist. Because of its different character, this book is a good alternative for, or a welcome addition to, the existing American textbooks.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research

    Review of the hardback: 'This book is a very welcome addition to liaison psychiatry literature. It is the first really comprehensive textbook of liaison psychiatry by authors predominantly working in the UK; however, the inclusion of a number of eminent international contributors greatly enhances it. … Were I asked to recommend a single liaison psychiatry textbook for liaison psychiatrists and trainees it would now be this one.' The British Journal of Psychiatry

    Review of the hardback: '… this book can be strongly recommended as a useful introduction to an important subject.' Journal of Mental Health
