Book Description

March 4, 2011 1585623458 978-1585623457 1
A must-have resource for both mental health professionals and laypeople, The Language of Mental Health: A Glossary of Psychiatric Terms transcends its title by offering not only a comprehensive, up-to-the-minute glossary of terms, both general and specialized, but also a full complement of features, including commonly used abbreviations, psychiatric measures, medications used in psychiatry, legal terms, and mental health resources. Each section is organized in a logical manner that optimizes ease of use and presentation. Although The Language of Mental Health is designed to be used primarily by professionals, patients and their families, mental health advocacy groups, attorneys, and others also will appreciate its many reader-friendly features. The definitions are written in a style that is direct and accessible, and the Web-savvy list of mental health resources is current and complete. Clinicians will value having critical information in a single volume concise, yet substantial enough to withstand frequent consultation and extended study. Utterly complete and yet accessible, The Language of Mental Health is the most current compendium of psychiatric terminology available today and is essential reading for practitioners, researchers, and residents.

"This book is unique to the field and there are few comparable publications. Additionally, the chapter on mental health resources is very valuable, as it includes physical addresses, web addresses, and phone numbers. Overall, this is a nice contribution to the field."-- "Steven T. Herron, M.D., DOODY'S PUBLISHERS' CLUB", "June 2011"

I was surprise to note that the book do not have the word "resilience", is not that I don't know what it means...but such an important word should be there!
