Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471909025, Paperback)This new edition of Jennifer Hughes' successful book presents as before a comprehensive account of current practice in psychiatry. It covers classification, causes and prevention of psychiatric disorders and gives practical information on history- taking, mental state examination and investigation. Each of the major syndromes is discussed, as well as the psychiatry of special age groups and populations. The second edition has been expanded to take account of recent advances in knowledge, and provides many new, recently-published references. The chapter on the Mental Health Act has been rewritten in the light of the 1983 legislation. In addition, the author has adapted the text to make it useful not only to psychiatrists in training and practice, but to readers in other specialities with no previous knowledge of the subject.
