proach to the Psychiatric Patient is a case-based exploration of psychiatry. It is both a general introduction to multiple aspects of the field and a series of sophisticated discussions that clarify controversies, dilemmas, and ambiguities. By covering the psychiatric waterfront while featuring many subspecialties, the book intends to fill a gap that exists between standard psychiatric reviews, specialty texts, and pocket guides. Further, by making use of over 100 essayists, Approach to the Psychiatric Patient captures much of the complexity and richness that make modern psychiatry a fascinating challenge.
