Understanding Psychiatric Treatment Summary


Understanding Psychiatric Treatment: Therapy for Serious Mental Health Disorder in Adults by Gerald O'Mahony

The growth of the case management, multidisciplinary teamwork approach to treatment for mental health disorder has created the need for brief, accessible accounts of the most common treatments and treatment approaches. Increasingly, a range of mental health professionals must share an understanding of problems and treatments if they are to interact effectively, to plan and implement treatment based on individual patient needs. There are many specialised books with more detailed accounts of specific therapies and treatment approaches, but this unique book brings together a group of experienced clinicians who provide in this one volume an up-to-date overview of the main medical and psychological approaches to therapy and methods of treatment. Psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, and therapists, in training and practice, and medical students will all find this a concise, interesting and useful guide to a common understanding of current psychiatric treatment. "this is a good first overview of medical treatments in psychiatry. It is also useful as a sourcebook, opening further avenues for study and enquiry. " Len Bowers, Reader in Mental Health Nursing. City University, London
