Description - Concise Guide to Assessment and Management of Violent Patients by Kenneth Tardiff

Clinicians encounter violent patients in any treatment setting -- from private offices and medical units to psychiatric inpatient units. Written by one of the foremost experts on violence, the second edition of this concise, practical guide provides psychiatry residents, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals with vital information required to manage potentially violent patients. Considerably updated, this book contains current information on psychopharmacology and the management of violent patients, an expanded section on the safety of clinicians, and a new section on how to deal with threats of violence to the clinician. This guide will be especially useful and relevant to psychiatric residents, given the number of violent patients they encounter.
