The Burden of Adult ADHD in Comorbid Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders

 Neurology/Neurosurgery, Psychiatry  Comments Off on The Burden of Adult ADHD in Comorbid Psychiatric and Neurological Disorders
May 262020
 

This book highlights the importance of investigating for ADHD in adults with attention difficulties, poor memory and executive function impairments. The authors advocate a neurodevelopmental assessment approach in all phases of life, and explain how to perform such assessments. The identification of ADHD in adults with other psychiatric and neurological disorders will lead to a better response to treatments, and as a result reduce its social, economic and personal burden.
ADHD can no longer be considered solely a pediatric condition, as it occurs in a significant proportion of adults worldwide. However, ADHD in adults is often unrecognized and untreated. Diagnosing the disorder in adulthood is a challenge, due not only to the different clinical presentation in this phase of life, but also to the fact that other conditions may mask the symptoms. ADHD constitutes a hidden comorbidity with a detrimental impact of those affected, and a poor response (or even non-response) to several treatments.
Intended for psychiatrists, neurologists, specialists in gerontology and neuropsychology, this book is an indispensable resource for all mental health practitioners who want to optimize the treatment of patients affected by psychiatric and neurological disorders who respond poorly to standard treatments.

Psychiatry: 1,200 Questions to Help You Pass the Boards

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Psychiatry: 1,200 Questions to Help You Pass the Boards
May 182020
 

This review book contains 1,200 multiple-choice questions modeled on the types of questions seen in Part 1 of the board certification exam in adult psychiatry. The questions are accompanied by answers and explanations for why one answer is correct and the others are incorrect.

Questions are divided into 17 specialty categories—basic psychopathology, schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, geriatric psychiatry, child psychiatry, consultation-liaison psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, substance misuse, eating disorders and sexual disorders, mental retardation, sleep disorders, personality disorders, psychopharmacology, psychotherapies, psychology, and neurology. An additional chapter covers miscellaneous topics. All information has been thoroughly reviewed by experienced psychiatrists.

Review

European Journal of Neurology, Volume 12, Issue 11 — “This book, written by four physicians and psychologists from Philadelphia and Cleveland, contains approximately 1200 questions about psychiatry and neurology with detailed answers and explanations, making it one of the few books exclusively targeted at those preparing for Psychiatry Boards, although, according to the authors, it will also be helpful for psychiatry residents and psychiatrists preparing for various examinations. This comprehensive review contains multiple-choice questions each with detailed answers and explanations that will help the candidate to prepare for the examinations and also for daily praxis, and thus, represents a perfect supplement to other psychiatry and neurology resources. Again, special emphasis has been placed on psychopharmacology and neurology, two areas that are covered significantly on the boards. The book will certainly be of value not only for candiates appearing for the Board examinations, but also for psychiatric residents and practising psychiatrists and neurologists.”–European Journal of Neurology

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 1, Issue 68 — “This Q&A book is an excellent additional resource for the psychiatry boards. Two attributes set this book apart: the questions are grouped by topic, and there’s a comprehensive index. The grouping by topic makes it easier to find your strengths and weaknesses, and the index helps you find questions you may want to check again. This offering has a good mix of questions relevant to the boards.”

Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry (7th Edition)

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry (7th Edition)
Apr 292020
 

Widely recognized as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry stands head and shoulders above the competition. The text has been honed over seven editions, displaying a fluency, authority, and insight rarely found in textbooks which makes the process of assimilating information effective and enjoyable.

The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics, sub-specialties, and major psychiatric conditions required by the trainee psychiatrist. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of patients in a family and social context.

Full attention to ethical and legal issues is given within the evidence-based approach to practice provided in the text. Introductory chapters focus on recognition of signs and symptoms, classification and diagnosis, psychiatric assessment, and aetiology. Further chapters deal with all the major psychiatric syndromes, as well as providing detailed coverage of pharmacological and psychological treatments. The book gives equal prominence to ICD and DSM classifications – often with direct comparisons – making the book relevant to the practice of psychiatry throughout the world.

Boasting greater use of summary boxes, tables, and lists within a new modern design, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry remains the most up-to-date secondary level textbook of psychiatry available. The extensive bibliography has been brought up-to-date and there are targeted reading lists for each chapter. The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry fulfills all the study and revision needs of psychiatric trainees, but will also prove useful to medical students, GPs, qualified psychiatrists, and those in related fields who need to be kept informed with current psychiatric practice.

Electrophysiology and Psychophysiology in Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology

 Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Electrophysiology and Psychophysiology in Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology
Apr 282020
 

Psychophysiology is an ever expanding field. The application of psychophysiological investigations to psychiatric disorders is likewise expanding and has in fact shed much light on some of the neural processes contributing to the development of psychiatric symptoms and/or their amelioration following treatment. In the first part of this volume, we have selected a number of conditions where psychophysiological investigations have recently provided some insight into the pathophysiology of a particular manifestation (e.g., dissociation) or a disorder. Although this volume has a main focus on electrophysiological investigative modalities where neuroimaging was complimentary this added insight was included. The second part of the volume focuses on novel uses of psychophysiological measures, combining it with neuropsychology and imaging where possible, in the context of neuropsychiatric research and describes advanced analytical tools. Both basic and clinical investigators in this field should find the reviews and interpretations provided clear and informative. Clinicians will find this volume easy to assimilate. While direct clinical applications may be down the road, the insights provided should help the practicing clinicians to have firmer understanding of the complexity of the disorder they manage in everyday practice.
