Practical Problems in Clinical Psychiatry Summary

Practical Problems in Clinical Psychiatry: Some Clinical Guidelines by Edited by Keith Hawton

Many issues and dilemmas that affect the treatment of psychiatric patients concern questions about management, others the assessment of patients, and yet others the ethical aspects of psychiatric practice. In this book, a companion volume to "Dilemmas and Difficulties in the Management of Psychiatric patients", contributors cover a broad range of subjects including psychopharmacological and psychological treatment issues, and problems that arise in general psychiatry, consultant-liaison psychiatry, and general practice. There is particular emphasis on management strategies, including up-to-date reviews of relevant clinical and scientific literature. This book should be of value to clinical psychiatrists, both experienced practitioners and trainees, clinical psychologists, psychiatric nurses, social workers, and general practitioners. In particular, it should be useful as a course text for higher examinations in psychiatry.
