By (author): Bridgit C. Dimond

It is also intended to be of assistance to the many carers who find themselves in the position of needing to make decisions on behalf of mentally incapacitated relatives and friends.

The second book in the Evidence-Based Guides series, The Evidence-Based Guide to Antidepressant Medications, provides a clear reference to the current knowledge and evidence base for the use of antidepressants among a variety of patients across a wide range of disorders. Today, in part due to the newer antidepressants, which have fewer side effects and less toxicity in overdose, many non mental health professionals feel comfortable prescribing antidepressants. Antidepressants are prescribed for many patients in addition to those who have major depressive disorder, including patients with bipolar disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, and personality disorders, as well as those with medical illnesses. In addition, antidepressants are increasingly being prescribed by clinicians for so-called off-label use to treat illnesses for which the medications do not have U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval making it more important than ever for practicing clinicians to understand the use of antidepressants among several special populations, including children and adolescents, the geriatric patient, and pregnant and lactating women. Chapters within this guide are authored by experts in their respective areas of practice. Together, they have synthesized a large amount of medical literature into a comprehensive, yet understandable, concise, reader-friendly guide that features useful tables pertaining to the efficacy of specific medications and summaries of important clinical pearls of wisdom that are summarized at the end of each chapter into Key Clinical Concepts. This text is a must-have reference for psychiatrists and other practicing clinicians, residents-in-training, psychiatric nurses, social workers, and researchers.

The first major textbook to cover the treatments of DSM-5[registered] disorders in one volume, Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders, Fifth Edition, provides up-to-date, comprehensive information for the busy clinician. Like its predecessors, this new edition was written by leading experts in psychiatry and constitutes an authoritative guide to standard of care for psychiatric disorders. However, the book has been thoroughly revised to conform to the DSM-5[registered], with sections and chapters corresponding to the manual's categories, and the research summarized in this volume based on studies using DSM-IV[registered] criteria. This revision focuses exclusively on treatment, emphasizing those that have been deemed effective through the use of randomized, controlled trials, supplemented by the authors' prodigious clinical wisdom. Since it was first published in 1989, the book has assumed the mantle of "classic," a reputation founded on scientific rigor, cutting-edge coverage, and scrupulous editing. Evidence-based and DSM-5[registered] compatible, this new edition of Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders represents a leap forward in accessibility and practicality.
