Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry
Oxford University Press, 1989 - Medical - 1079 pages
This textbook of clinical psychiatry provides a sound introduction to all the major clinical issues. It focuses on general adult psychiatry, but also includes introductory chapters on child psychiatry, mental retardation, and forensic psychiatry. Throughout the book there is an emphasis on the basic clinical skills required for the full assessment and understanding of the patient. In this new edition, the main aims and general approach are maintained, but the text has been extensively revised to incorporate the latest systems of classification, principally ICD-10 and DSM-III-R in the sections dealing with clinical syndromes, and to introduce advances in knowledge and practice.
