This exciting new textbook aims to bring the subject of psychiatry alive. Refreshing and inspirational, Psychiatry uses numerous excerpts and images from the worlds of art, film and literature to illustrate the core psychiatric content needed by medical students and junior doctors.


Psychiatry is placed in an historical context and the complex ethical and philosophical issues that are inherent to the practice of psychiatry are highlighted. The book challenges the reader to think about these issues and to appreciate that psychiatry is about more than just treating mental illness.


This informative and engaging new psychiatry text uses a range of pedagogical features throughout the full colour text, and includes case studies and self assessment material.
