Abstract

Well known for providing a thorough yet concise view of the natural history of psychiatric disorders, this popular text has been newly updated chapter by chapter in this seventh edition. As in previous editions, each chapter systematically covers the definition, historical background, epidemiology, clinical picture, natural history, complications, family studies, differential diagnosis, and clinical management of each disorder. Terminology has been updated for consistency with changes made in DSM-5. Recent epidemiological and neurobiological findings are provided, including the long-term course of mood disorders, genetics and neuroimaging of schizophrenia and mood and other disorders, cognitive changes in relation to depression and dementia, brain stimulation techniques, outcome studies of eating disorders, and epidemiology of substance use disorders. This edition reaffirms the importance of careful psychiatric diagnosis as the essential foundation for treatment decisions. No other text provides such a lucid, well-documented and critically sound overview of the major syndromes in psychiatry. Medical students, psychiatric residents, and other students will continue to find Psychiatric Diagnosis a unique guide to the field.
