Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry Book Excerpt:

Widely recognized as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry stands head and shoulders above the competition. The text has been honed over seven editions, displaying a fluency, authority, and insight rarely found in textbooks which makes the process of assimilating information effective and enjoyable. The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics, sub-specialties, and major psychiatric conditions required by the trainee psychiatrist. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of patients in a family and social context. Full attention to ethical and legal issues is given within the evidence-based approach to practice provided in the text. Introductory chapters focus on recognition of signs and symptoms, classification and diagnosis, psychiatric assessment, and aetiology. Further chapters deal with all the major psychiatric syndromes, as well as providing detailed coverage of pharmacological and psychological treatments. The book gives equal prominence to ICD and DSM classifications - often with direct comparisons - making the book relevant to the practice of psychiatry throughout the world. Boasting greater use of summary boxes, tables, and lists within a new modern design, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry remains the most up-to-date secondary level textbook of psychiatry available. The extensive bibliography has been brought up-to-date and there are targeted reading lists for each chapter. The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry fulfils all the study and revision needs of psychiatric trainees, but will also prove useful to medical students, GPs, qualified psychiatrists, and those in related fields who need to be kept informed with current psychiatric practice.

Madness and Crime Book Excerpt:

This book provides an authoritative and highly readable review of the relationship between madness and crime by one of the leading authorities in the field. The book is divided into four parts, each essay focusing on selected features of madness which have relevance to contemporary society. The aim is not to provide a comprehensive review of the literature, or a definitive statement about where we stand, but to reflect on central elements of a field that continues to perplex and challenge, drawing upon a range of disciplines and approaches. Part 1 is about madness itself, exploring three main models - cognitive, statistical, and emotional. Part 2 discusses madness, genius and their interrelationship. Part 3 is about the much neglected area of compulsion, an issue that has largely disappeared from public debate. The mad may have moved from victim to violator, yet fundamental questions remain - in particular how to justify compulsory detention, and who should undertake the process? The answers to these questions have sociological, ethical and jurisprudential elements, and cannot just be resolved by reference to medical authorities. Part 4 is about the links between madness and crime - focusing less on the question and nature of criminal responsibilty and the various defences that go with this, more on the links between madness and crime and which particular crimes are linked with which types of disorder

The Psychological Impact of Living Under Violence and Poverty in Brazil Book Excerpt:

Brazil is a developing country with major economic problems, with one-third of the population living in poverty. Brazil has one of the highest rates of violence in the world, much of it occurring in urban poor areas. In many instances, these conditions of violence are inter-related with common mental health disorders. In this book, a number of social- demographic and clinical factors are postulated to explain, in part, the association among poverty, violence and mental health disorders in Brazil. Among these factors are gender, age groups, low level education, rapid social change, and living through a period of rapid and unpredictable social change, physical-ill health and mental illness. There are only a few investigations in Brazil addressing these issues of violence and mental health. Within this context, this book provides some scientific research data which might serve to inform the development of interventions, and encourage further investigations likely to benefit poor people with common mental health disorders in Brazil.

R D Laing Book Excerpt:

This unique volume aims to re-establish R. D. Laingâ??s position, and reputation, as the major critic of orthodox, medically-based, psychiatry. Laingâ??s complex personality enabled powerful figures in the British psychiatric establishment to malign him when he was at the height of his fame, largely because Laingâ??s ideas, and public posture, posed a formidable threat to their medical authority. As critic Peter Sedgwick had observed, Laingâ??s work was capable of considerable further development. He related mainstream psychiatryâ??s indebtedness to Laing to the fact that no rival approach possessed any dynamic or momentum of comparable power. Additionally, Laingâ??s theories of schizophrenia had been powerfully aided â??by the distinguished cultural and philosophical apparatus in which they reposedâ?. Subsequent events have proved Sedgwick right, and this book is a record of continuing developments (in theory and practice) of the main corpus of Laingâ??s work, and an adumbration of likely future developments. The disciplines involved cover, or implicate, such distinct areas of intellectual inquiry as psychiatry (including neurobiology), psychotherapy, philosophy and anthropology. Contributors include Luc Ciompi, Loren Mosher and Louis Sass.
