Biological Treatments in Psychiatry Summary


Biological Treatments in Psychiatry by Malcolm H. Lader

This authoritative textbook describes biological and physical therapies in psychiatry, relating them closely to patient management. A critical evaluation of the literature is also provided. All the major biological and pharmaceutical treatments are covered, including anti-depresssants and antipsychotics, neuropharmacology and problems of diagnosis and response to treatment are fully discussed. There are individual chapters on electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), psychosurgery, drug treatment in children and drug treatment in the elderly. This account provides a discussion of the scientific background needed for professional examinations in psychiatry (such as MRCPsych). Therefore it will be useful to psychiatrists in training, and its practical approach will be of use to clinicians, consultant psychiatrists who want to ensure that they are aware of recent developments and treatment practices, and clinical psychiatrists.
