This new fourth edition of the Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry
is the essential, evidence-based companion to all aspects of psychiatry, from diagnosis and conducting a clinical interview to management by subspecialty. Fully updated to reflect changes to the legislature and classification of psychiatric disorders, and with coverage of the anticipated ICD-11 coding, this Handbook provides the latest advances in both clinical practice and management today.
As in previous editions, the Handbook is indexed alphabetically by ICD-10 and DSM-5 codes,as well as a list of acute presentations for quick access in emergency situations. The practical layout helps the reader in making clinical diagnosis, and suggested differential diagnosis makes this title an invaluable guide to provide reassurance to health professionals when dealing with psychiatric issues.
With a new chapter on Neuropsychiatry and a re-written section on gender dysphoria to reflect the biological and cultural developments in understanding and research since the previous edition, and filled with clinical observations, guidance, and commentary that reflects the authors' practical experiences of working in psychiatry, this Handbook is the indispensable guide for all trainee and practising psychiatrists. Review from previous edition For the clinicians it is a good read especially for junior doctors who are on call and need a practical book to refer to. This book is well-written and well-organised with a good readable style. * BMA Book Awards 2014. Highly Commended * This is another brilliant addition to the excellent Oxford Handbook series which seems to go from strength to strength ... this is an outstanding book that seems to cover a huge amount of territory in an educational and informative style ... Generally speaking, Oxford Handbooks are excellent but I would place this book one notch up and call it superb. * Dr Harry Brown MBChB, Glycosmedia *
