Psychiatry in Practice: Education, Experience, and Expertise provides detailed advice and useful tips for early career psychiatrists, and all others who wish to enhance their practical psychiatry skills.

Each chapter is written by prominent early career psychiatrists from around the world, offering relevant and timely advice to those who are newly qualified, as well as a global perspective on the practical issues faced today. Covering a variety of topics from 'Psychiatric Emergencies' to 'Ethics and
clinical practice in psychiatry', chapters include vignettes of scenarios that may be encountered, making this book pertinent and easily applicable to many early career situations.

Skills related to personal management and managing resources are often not taught during training but are key to establishing a career in psychiatry - this book will help the new clinician to develop professionally. The emphasis on practicality ensures psychiatrists are prepared for the needs of the
modern health service and society at large, and ensures patients across the world experience the best treatment available.
