Bringing together over 200 chapters from the leading figures in the discipline, the New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry--one of the leading reference works in the field--presents a comprehensive account of clinical psychiatry, with reference to its scientific basis and to the patient's perspective throughout.

Throughout this second edition, accounts of clinical practice are linked to the underlying science, and to the evidence for the efficacy of treatments. Physical and psychological treatments, including psychodynamic approaches, are covered in depth. The history of psychiatry, ethics, public health aspects, and public attitudes to psychiatry and to patients are all given due attention.

All chapters from the first edition have been completely revised and 50 new chapters added; the sections on forensic psychiatry and on psychology as a basic science have been expanded; sections on treatment combine an evidence-based approach with practical advice based on clinical experience; and among the new chapters are new entries on stigma and discrimination, and on values-based practice.

Features:
* An established and highly-praised textbook of psychiatry
* Written and edited by the foremost international authorities
* Integrates biological, psychological, and social approaches, providing the broadest possible coverage of the field
* Extensive coverage of child and adolescent psychiatry, old age psychiatry, intellectual disability, and forensic psychiatry, in addition to all aspects of general psychiatry
* Sections on treatment combine an evidence-based approach with practical advice based on extensive clinical experience
