This is a book of psychiatry at its most practical level. It aims to answer the sorts of questions psychiatrists ask on a daily basis. What treatments are available for the condition that I think this patient has? What is the relative value of each of these treatments? Are there any other treatments that I should be considering if a first approach has failed? Is there any value in combinations of treatment? And, can I be sure that the evidence and recommendations I read are free from bias? The content is organised into three sections covering disease classification, the major treatment modalities and the application of these treatments to the wide range of psychiatric diagnoses. All professionals in mental health want to give the best treatments for their patients. This book provides clinicians with the knowledge and guidance to achieve this aim.

In The Press

'This is a truly excellent book that offers a well organised clinician-friendly review of the latest understanding of psychiatric disorders. A particularly strong attribute is the fact that it is a collaborative effort by psychiatrists from both North America and Europe; the synthesis of their recommendations is thorough and intriguing. Any practising psychiatrists would find this an excellent source for the latest treatment modalities in the field.' Doody's
