Foundations of Clinical Psychiatry by Sidney Bloch
Book DescriptionFoundations of Clinical Psychiatry is an introductory text for students of medicine and other health professions, including psychiatric nursing, psychology, social work and occupational therapy, as well as for family doctors. Using a clear, coherent framework, it emphasises biological, psychological and social factors in assessing and treating patients, and illustrates this approach with dozens of clinical stories. The fully revised and updated third edition brings in fourteen new contributors and a new chapter on psychiatric aspects of intellectual disability. Chapters on ethics, the effects of trauma and the mental health of indigenous people, and a section on the mental health of refugees also feature. Shared commitment to the biopsychosocial approach by the authors, all experts in their field, makes for a remarkably consistent and useful text.
