Kaplan & Sadock's Concise Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry (Paperback) (M.D. Benjamin James Sadock & M.D.
About this item
Derived from Kaplan and Sadock's Synopsis of Psychiatry, this concise textbook explains the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders in adults and children (eliminating the sections on behavioral science from the larger textbook). It covers classification, psychiatric interviews, the history, mental status examinations, assessment and laboratory testing, various disorders, geriatric psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, and ethics. This edition has been updated and revised to reflect the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It has new and revised coverage of childhood disorders, gender dysphoria, issues affecting LGBT individuals, reproductive medicine, physician-assisted suicide, posttraumatic stress disorder, the effects of terrorism and torture, end-of-life issues, pain control, euthanasia, and other topics; new chapters on public psychiatry and world aspects of psychiatry; an expanded chapter on psychotherapy to include newer treatments like mentalization and mindfulness; a new and updated glossary; and a new section on brain stimulation methods.
