PSYCHIATRY SECRETS 2nd Edition PDF

PSYCHIATRIC SECRETS Second Edition PDF Psychiatric Secrets presents an up-to-date approach to the assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in children, adults, and the elderly. It uses a question and answer format to address key principles in linical practice in keeping with the concept of The Secrets Series . The questions raise central issues and provide the organizational structure for each chapter.

This process of question and answer yields a dialogue through which the expert clinicians who authored each chapter can provide their best “pearls of wisdom” often gained from years of experience as researchers, educators, and practicing clinicians.

Psychiatric Secrets is divided into twelve sections that address in systematic fashion the  steps in the treatment process. The book has a heavy emphasis on diagnosis, for it is the belief of the editors that careful, thoughtful diagnosis is the “springboard” to treatment. The first two sections outline a general approach to gathering and presenting clinical information.

The next three sections on major psychiatric syndromes and clinical problems focus primarily on issues related to diagnosis, including careful descriptions of  common clinical characteristics, etiology, course of illness, and, when appropriate, basic features of treatment. The section devoted to therapeutic approaches presents introductions to both psychotherapeutic and biologic treatments, and includes
indications, contraindications, and side effects of interventions. The final section
provides integrating information related to common problems and settings, such as child  psychiatry, assessment and treatment of suicidal and violent patients, and consultation-liaison psychiatry, as well as ethical and legal aspects of psychiatry.

This text is intended to reinforce concepts for the mental health professional, yet is  geared primarily for the medical student, house officer, and general practitioner.

The  chapters are designed to be read independently, and thus there is occasional overlap of information. Each author was given complete freedom to utilize his or her expertise in  expressing views about assessment or treatment. Thus, Psychiatric Secrets presents  both basic information as well as the approach of experienced practitioners to specific  topics
