The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry is authored by three of the most experienced clinicians and researchers in European psychiatry whose range of expertise extends from neuroscience to social psychiatry

Now in its sixth edition, the content has continually been refined over the years; resulting in a book that gives the reader exactly the material they need for up-to-date knowledge and practice
Includes wide coverage, from neuroscience to social psychiatry - focused on scientific areas that are growing in importance as well as current medical and social models of care delivery
The book is strong on practical, evidence-based guidance as well as providing succinct analyses of clinical and scientific foundations

An authored, rather than edited, book. This has numerous benefits for the reader - in particular a coherence and uniformity and balance that is seldom achieved in edited volumes

New to this edition

The 6th edition includes more coverage on social psychiatry (as a result of the presence of Tom Burns in the authorship)
Updated to include the latest developments in the fast moving fields of genetics and neuroscience, with a balanced discussion of the influence these discoveries will have on clinical psychiatric practice
Widely recognised as the standard text for trainee psychiatrists, the Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry stands head and shoulders above the competition. The text has been honed over five editions and displays a fluency, authority and insight which is not only rarely found but makes the process of assimilating information as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

The book provides an introduction to all the clinical topics required by the trainee psychiatrist, including all the sub-specialties and major psychiatric conditions. Throughout, the authors emphasize the basic clinical skills required for the full assessment and understanding of the patient. Discussion of treatment includes not only scientific evidence, but also practical problems in the management of patients their family and social context. The text emphasizes an evidence-based approach to practice and gives full attention to ethical and legal issues. Introductory chapters focus on recognition of signs and symptoms, classification and diagnosis, psychiatric assessment, and aetiology. Further chapters deal with all the the major psychiatric syndromes as well as providing detailed coverage of pharmacological and psychological treatments. The book gives equal prominence to ICD and DSM classification - often with direct comparisons - giving the book a universal appeal.

The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry remains the most up-to-date secondary level textbook of psychiatry available, with the new edition boasting a new modern design and greater use of summary boxes, tables, and lists than ever before. The extensive bibliography has been brought up-to-date and there are targeted reading lists for each chapter. The Shorter Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry fulfils all the study and revision needs of psychiatric trainees, but will also prove useful to medical students, GPs, qualified psychiatrists, and those in related fields who need to be kept informed with current psychiatric practice.
