Endorsements & Reviews
“An important component of the work regarding students and residents is that it leaves nothing to chance; important terms are clearly defined, and the facts are placed into a historical context, which helps the novice understand the evolution of the field…. Excellent case descriptions bring the abstract concepts to life…. [T]he information provided is relevant and to the point, with excellent instruments for clinicians to use in day-to-day practice…It will be invaluable to students during an initial psychiatric experience. Overall, this is a readable, easy-to-understand, and helpful basic text for students, or ‘refresher’ for practicing clinicians.” — The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
“The student will learn much and learn it enjoyably[...] For medical students' learning, non-psychiatric physicians' reviewing, or just a plain good read, this is a winner.” — American Journal of Psychiatry
“It is funny, occasionally provocative, and filled with clinically relevant descriptions of the important diagnostic features of the major psychiatric syndromes.” — Contemporary Psychiatry
“Essential Psychopathology and Its Treatment gives us so much. The authors cogently lead the reader through a rich discussion of conceptual issues, followed by a detailed review of specific disorders. It is a treat! From the novice practitioner to the experienced clinician, this readable volume has something for all who attempt to treat those whose psychopathology has interrupted life's journey.” — Allan Josephson, MD, Professor and Chief, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Kentucky
