Book description

This book is a guide for psychiatrists struggling to incorporate transformational strategies into their clinical work. The book begins with an overview of the concept of critical psychiatry before focusing its analytic lens on the DSM diagnostic system, the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, the crucial distinction between drug-centered and disease-centered approaches to pharmacotherapy, the concept of "de-prescribing," coercion in psychiatric practice, and a range of other issues that constitute the targets of contemporary critiques of psychiatric theory and practice. Written by experts in each topic, this is the first book to explicate what has come to be called critical psychiatry from an unbiased and clinically relevant perspective.

Critical Psychiatry is an excellent, practical resource for clinicians seeking a solid foundation in the contemporary controversies within the field. General and forensic psychiatrists; family physicians, internists, and pediatricians who treat psychiatric patients; and mental health clinicians outside of medicine will all benefit from its conceptual insights and concrete advice. "Readers of CMHJ will want to read Critical Psychiatry, Controversies and Clinical Implications cover to cover. This slim, highly readable edited volume is a thoughtfully presented collection of essays addressing all the cringe-worthy aspects of 'modern' psychiatry in a frank, open and refreshing manner. ... I recommend it highly." (Margaret M. Chaplin and Michael Flaum, Community Mental Health Journal, Vol. 55, 2019)
