Fully updated for DSM-5 and designed specifically for medical students, as well as other trainees in the heath professions, Psychiatry 3e is a dynamic introductory textbook in psychiatry. Ideally suited for first and second year medical students during their psychopathology course and third year medical students during their psychiatry clerkship, the material is presented in a clear, concise, and practical manner perfect for exam preparation. The authors provide a thorough yet
concise introduction to clinical psychiatry, focusing on basic clinical skills like recognition and assessment of psychiatric illness. Clinically relevant information is emphasized, including practical interviewing techniques.
Psychiatry 3e also uses case studies, DSM-5 guidelines, and extensive tables offset from the text to act as a comprehensive yet concise guide for the busy medical student studying for exams. In response to DSM-5, the third edition has been reorganised and fully updated to include the new disorders and classification of psychiatric illness.
