First published in 1989 and already a staple of psychiatric practice through three editions, Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders has been thoroughly revised to reflect modern clinical expertise in a more accessible volume. More than 160 authorities share insights gained from firsthand experience in a state-of-the-art text that covers all major treatments in psychiatry linked to specific disorders, with a pluralistic approach that includes all major treatment modalities without focusing exclusively on favorite approaches. Not only has each chapter been completely updated, the text has been reorganized to facilitate its publication in a single volume that cuts directly to the heart of disorder-based treatments.

Scrupulously reviewed to consolidate treatment information most needed by readers, the book is organized along the lines of DSM-IV-TR to cover the entire spectrum of conditions: disorders of childhood; cognitive disorders; substance-related disorders; psychotic disorders; mood disorders; anxiety, dissociative, and adjustment disorders; somatoform and factitious disorders; eating disorders; personality disorders; sleep disorders; and disorders of impulse control. Empirically validated treatments for each disorder are summarized; where empirical data are lacking, the contributors' clinical wisdom is brought to bear to advise the reader how to approach a particular condition. This fourth edition features a number of significant enhancements. Coverage of dementia has been expanded to reflect the disorder's increasing incidence, especially in Alzheimer's disease and cerebrovascular illness. Material on substance abuse disorders is organized so that problems with individual drugs and certain common treatment modalities are given separate chapters, with sections within each chapter written by separate authors who are experts on that particular topic. Coverage of schizophrenia reflects research of the past decade demonstrating the importance of the cognitive characteristics and sequelae of the illness and outlining the domains and molecular targets of intervention. The section on eating disorders has been streamlined to four chapters covering intensive treatments, psychopharmacological treatment, evidence-based and innovative psychological treatments, and family and marital therapy. The chapters on personality disorders reflect important recent advances: longitudinal research showing that such disorders undergo substantial improvements; the growing recognition that personality disorders have significant genetic determination; and the manualization of psychoanalytic psychotherapy to permit testing and replication.

Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders is an essential touchstone for practitioners and an outstanding reference for students in the mental health professions. Particular care in streamlining its revision has helped make this fourth edition an even more useful clinical tool for day-to-day practice.
