The Psychiatric Mental Status Examination Book Review:

Developed from years of teaching psychiatry to medical students and residents, this comprehensive text devoted solely to describing the mental status examination (MSE) fills a void in the teaching literature and will be valuable to both students first learning about the MSE and seasoned clinicians seeking an informative reference. The introductory chapter offers basic advice on interviewing patients and eliciting information. Six major sections of the MSE follow and are thoroughly described with a chapter devoted to each: Appearance, Attitude, Activity; Mood and Affect; Speech and Language; Thought Content, Thought Process, and Perception; Cognition; and Insight and Judgment. Each chapter lists a detailed definition of reference for students describing their findings, and are an insightful review even for experienced practitioners. The clinical relevance of mental status abnormalities is illustrated through frequent examples of disorders that can cause the particular signs and symptoms defined in each chapter. A final chapter describing fictional case histories with hypothetical examples of written mental status reports will be particularly useful for those learning to write such reports. This text is an important addition to the libraries of students and practitioners who work with psychiatric patients and should help to simplify and organize a challenging task.

The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry Book Review:

Psychiatrists are distinct among mental health professionals in that their knowledge and training allow them to be the ultimate integrators of the biological and psychosocial perspectives underlying diagnostic understanding and treatment. This integrative focus is built into the fourth edition of this encyclopedic-and now classic-textbook. Three years in the making, it has undergone more comprehensive and significant change than any previous edition. This densely informative textbook comprises 40 scholarly, authoritative chapters by an astonishing 89 experts and combines junior and senior authors alike to enhance the rich diversity and quality of clinical perspectives. The editors have added a chapter on interpersonal therapy and updated all chapters to include the latest references and research findings. Selected chapters have been completely rewritten by new authors. This wide-ranging reference is divided into four main parts: the theoretical bases of psychiatry, from genetics and normal development to various psychiatric assessment tools; psychiatric disorders, including those usually first diagnosed in infancy, childhood, or adolescence; the latest treatments, from psychopharmacology and electroconvulsive therapy to hypnosis and various types of psychotherapy; and special clinical topics such as suicide, violence, women's mental health, cultural psychiatry, the law and psychiatry, and ethics and psychiatry. Although crafted primarily for advanced psychiatry residents and practicing psychiatrists, this highly practical volume (and its companion "Electronic DSM-IV-TR Plus" on CD-ROM) remains a standard educational reference for physicians of other specialties, including family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, and neurology.

Handbook of Infant Toddler and Preschool Mental Health Assessment Book Review:

The Handbook of Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Mental Health Assessment brings together, for the first time, leading clinical researchers to provide empirically based recommendations for assessment of social-emotional and behavior problems and disorders in the earliest years. Each author presents state-of-the-art information on scientifically valid, developmentally based clinical assessments and makes recommendations based on the integration of developmental theory, empirical findings, and clinical experience. Though the field of mental health assessment in infants and young children lags behind work with older children and adults, recent scientific advances, including new measures and diagnostic approaches, have led to dramatic growth in the field. The editors of this exciting new work have assembled an extraordinary collection of chapters that thoroughly discuss the conceptualizations of dysfunction in infants and young children, current and new diagnostic criteria, and such specific disorders as sensory modulation dysfunction, sleep disorders, eating and feeding disorders, autistic spectrum disorders, anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and ADHD. Chapters further highlight the importance of incorporating contextual factors such as parent-child relationship functioning and cultural background into the assessment process to increase the validity of findings. Given the comprehensiveness of this groundbreaking volume in reviewing conceptual, methodological, and research advances on early identification, diagnosis, and clinical assessment of disorders in this young age group, it will be an ideal resource for teachers, researchers, and a wide variety clinicians including child psychologists, child psychiatrists, early intervention providers, early special educators, social workers, family physicians, and pediatricians.

Cognitive Assessment for Clinicians Book Review:

The third edition of the best-selling Cognitive Assessment for Clinicians provides readers with an up-to-date, practical guide to cognitive function and its assessment to ensure readers have a conceptual knowledge of normal psychological function and how to interpret their findings. Organized into 8 chapters, this resource offers a framework in which various aspects of cognition are considered.

To ensure readers are aware of the latest developments in patient assessment and neuropsychological practice all content has been carefully revised by John R. Hodges to include essential updates on areas such as the pathology and genetics of frontotemporal dementia, and social cognition and major syndromes encountered in clinical practice such as delirium. This useful resource offers a theoretical basis for cognitive assessment at the bedside or in the clinic, and a practical guide to taking an appropriate history and examining patients presenting with cognitive disorders. This edition also includes the latest version of Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination III (ACE-III), and 16 case histories on a variety of cognitive disorders illustrating the method of assessment and how to use the ACE-III in clinical practice. In addition, the appendix outlines the range of formal tests commonly used in neuropsychological practice.

Handbook of Violence Risk Assessment and Treatment Book Review:

"This book describes violence risk assessment in both juveniles and adults, incorporating dynamic and static factors, along with treatment alternativesÖ..Research and practice are combined quite nicely, along with assessment and treatment. There is something for everyone here." Score: 91, 4 stars --Doody's "Forensic clinicians will find this book to be a valuable reference book as well as a very useful clinical treatment guide relevant to violent offenders." --Jeffrey L. Metzner, MD Mental health practitioners are confronted with the difficult task of assessing the risk that offenders pose to the general public. This comprehensive volume provides practitioners with the knowledge and insight necessary to conduct violence risk assessments, and to synthesize clinical and research data into comprehensive reports and oral testimony. Violence risk assessment requires a well-formulated and comprehensive risk management plan. Andrade and the authors present that plan, and demonstrate how it can be clearly implemented in practice. With numerous clinical case studies, this book illustrates the process of conducting violence risk assessments, outlines the tools used in these evaluations, and explains how information is translated into an overall assessment and guide for future risk management. Key Features: Investigates the etiology of violent behavior, and provides a review and analysis of recent literature Discusses both adult and youth violence, providing insight into the developmental course of aggressive behavior throughout the lifespan Contains chapters on special populations, including female offenders, intimate partners, psychopathic and mentally ill offenders, and sexually abusive youth Useful to practitioners from various fields including social work, psychology, and psychiatry, as well as students in these disciplines Ultimately, this book provides practitioners with an understanding of risk assessment, treatment, and risk management, serving as an authoritative guide to applying empirical findings to mental health practice.
