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.

ADHD as a Model of Brain-Behavior Relationships

Leonard F. Koziol, Deborah Ely Budding, and Dana Chidekel

 Series Title: Springer Briefs in Neuroscience

Subseries: The Vertically Organized Brain in Theory and Practice

It's been a basic neurological given: the brain does our thinking, and has evolved to do the thinking, as controlled by the neocortex. In this schema, all dysfunction can be traced to problems in the brain’s lateral interactions. But in scientific reality, is this really true? Challenging this traditional cortico-centric view is a body of research emphasizing the role of the structures that control movement-the brain's vertical organization-in behavioral symptoms.

Using a well-known, widely studied disorder as a test case, ADHD as a Model of Brain-Behavior Relationships offers an innovative framework for integrating neuroscience and behavioral research to refine diagnostic process and advance the understanding of disorders. Identifying a profound disconnect between current neuropsychological testing and the way the brain actually functions, this revision of the paradigm critiques the DSM and ICD in terms of the connectedness of brain structures regarding cognition and behavior. The authors argue for a large-scale brain network approach to pathology instead of the localizing that is so common historically, and for an alternate set of diagnostic criteria proposed by the NIMH. Included in the coverage:

  • The diagnosis of ADHD: history and context.
  • ADHD and neuropsychological nomenclature
  • Research Domain Criteria: a dimensional approach to evaluating disorder
  • The development of motor skills, executive function, and a relation to ADHD
  • The role of the cerebellum in cognition, emotion, motivation, and dysfunction
  • How large-scale brain networks interact

Heralding a more accurate future of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders, ADHD as a Model of Brain-Behavior Relationships represents a major step forward for neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and psychiatrists, or any related profession interested in a neuroscientific understanding of brain function.

Psychiatry Finals: EMQs and OSCEs (Paperback)

By (author): Kazuya Iwata, Afia Ali

This revision guide contains Extended Matching Questions (EMQs) and Observed Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) that comprehensively cover the major topics in Psychiatry likely to be tested at medical school. It will also be an invaluable resource to those taking other exams such as the PLAB and postgraduate Psychiatry examinations.

Part 1 comprises 58 EMQs, divided into 8 chapters, covering questions on mental state examinations, general adult psychiatry, developmental and organic disorders, treatments, and management issues. Most EMQs focus on a particular presentation or issue and are based on clinical vignettes that describe a clinical scenario. Each EMQ is organized as five stems with 10 possible choices and answers to each EMQ are given at the end of each chapter with additional notes clarifying specific options not covered in the questions.

Part 2 covers OSCEs, which are based on common clinical scenarios and stations frequently encountered in exams. The 23 questions cover history-taking, communication, and practical stations.

Ideal for medical students and junior doctors, this book is intended to complement rather than replace other psychiatry books, and will help students develop a better understanding of the clinical aspects of psychiatry.

This is a book of psychiatry at its most practical level. It aims to answer the sorts of questions psychiatrists ask on a daily basis. What treatments are available for the condition that I think this patient has? What is the relative value of each of these treatments? Are there any other treatments that I should be considering if a first approach has failed? Is there any value in combinations of treatment? And, can I be sure that the evidence and recommendations I read are free from bias? The content is organised into three sections covering disease classification, the major treatment modalities and the application of these treatments to the wide range of psychiatric diagnoses. All professionals in mental health want to give the best treatments for their patients. This book provides clinicians with the knowledge and guidance to achieve this aim.
