About the Authors
  • This second edition of Seminars in General Adult Psychiatry provides a highly readable and comprehensive account of modern adult psychiatry. Key features of the first edition that have been retained are the detailed clinical descriptions of psychiatric disorders, and historical sections to give the reader access to the classic studies of psychiatry as well as the current evidence. Additional topics covered here for the first time include liaison psychiatry, psychosexual medicine, clinical epidemiology, and international and cultural psychiatry. Clinical management is given due prominence, with extensive accounts of modern drug management, cognitive therapy, the main psychosocial approaches, and current guidelines such as those published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. An essential text for trainees studying for their MRCPsych, this book is also a one-stop reference work for established practitioners, providing comprehensive coverage of the whole of adult psychiatry.

    • Provides detailed clinical descriptions of both common and rare psychiatric disorders
    • Offers accounts of the history, epidemiology, diagnosis and clinical management of all the broad categories of disorder
    • The second edition includes new chapters on liaison psychiatry, clinical epidemiology, psychosexual medicine, and international and cultural psychiatry
