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.

Troublesome Disguises examines psychiatric conditions which are not necessarily uncommon, rare or exotic but are challenging for the clinician who may struggle to reach a diagnosis and to set up management strategies. However, with familiarity, these conditions can and should be recognised. This new edition is an exercise in consciousness-raising as well as a warning to beware of diagnostic systems which, despite their many virtues, may become too influential and may perpetuate errors which are to the detriment of patients. For the clinician struggling to understand and treat patients who fail to fit the usual diagnostic categories, Troublesome Disguises provides wise instruction in the virtue of entertaining doubts, as well as practical advice for the assessment and management of atypical cases.

Post-traumatic stress disorder is a psychiatric illness that can occur in anyone who has experienced a life-threatening or violent event. The trauma can be due to war, terrorism, torture, natural disasters, violence, or rape. In PTSD the brain areas that are likely to be affected are the hippocampus (memory), amygdala (fear association), the prefrontal cortex (cognitive processing), and the ascending reticular activating system (arousal). The chemical of interest is norepinephrine, which is released during a stressful event and is part of the fight-or-flight response meant to mobilize the body to action.The objective of this title is to outline the neurobiology of post-traumatic stress disorder and provide treatment strategies for clinicians. The chapter material from this book has evolved from a seminar on PTSD held recently under the auspices of the VA Boston Healthcare System, Boston University Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.  We propose a book that will focus on the epidemiology, neurobiology, MRI studies, animal models, arousal and sleep issues, clinical trials, and treatment strategies for clinicians. Treatment will cover such topics as guidelines for treating posttraumatic stress disorder, PTSD and the use of mental health services, cognitive intervention therapy, and large scale clinical trials in PTSD. This collection will be a vital source of information to clinicians and neuroscientists.
