CURRENT Diagnosis & Treatment: Psychiatry, Third Edition is the ultimate reference for quickly answering day-to-day questions on psychiatric illness in both adults and children.

The book opens with a section on the key principles and practice points of psychiatry, from decision making, epidemiology, and genetics to evaluation techniques and types of therapeutic interventions. This is followed by two core sections covering all areas of psychiatric disorders first in adults and then in children, ranging from amnesia and substance abuse through psychoses, mood disorders, and sleep and eating disorders as well as developmental delays, autism, and other pediatric behavioral problems. The last section focuses on practicing psychiatry in special environments such as the emergency department, the hospital, and the legal system.This edition has been updated to reflect the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-5 published by the American Psychiatric Association
