One of the most challenging clinical settings any psychiatrist faces is in the area of psychiatric emergency services. Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry is designed to help medical students, residents, and clinical faculty chart the appropriate course of treatment in a setting where an incorrect assessment can have life-and-death implications. Written collaboratively by faculty, residents, and students from various departments of psychiatry in the United States and Canada, Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry covers those topics that are generally the most important and practical in any busy psychiatric emergency department. Equally important, the chapters are arranged by chief complaint rather than by psychiatric diagnosis, and each contains an important summary that can provide clarity quickly when seconds count. This format gives the trainee the ability to quickly find key points for managing the clinical situation. In addition, this text serves as a backup guide to faculty and combines the approach of accomplished psychiatry trainees with the views of senior practitioners in the field.
