Today's busy trainees and practitioners can now turn to this economical new paperback-- Essentials of Clinical Psychiatry, which provides a unique synopsis of the most important material--20 of the original 40 chapters--included within the fourth edition of the classic The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry. A condensed and efficient companion to the Textbook, this book provides essential updates to the clinical material in a size amenable to reading and referencing. A remarkable team of 51 distinguished experts have created a compelling reference reflecting a biopsychosocial approach to patient treatment that is at once exciting and accessible. Here, these contributors have distilled the essence of their work into 20 skillfully crafted chapters--including three new chapters on the clinical treatment of children and adolescents--updating key clinical information related to a variety of settings (e.g., inpatient, partial hospitalization, outpatient, and rehabilitation programs).
