Reviewed in the United States on March 30, 2018
I am a psychiatric nurse and a student at one of the top schools for the PMHNP-DNP program. This is the best textbook for psychiatry I have ever read, it is comprehensive with epidemiology and psychodynamic, biological and social factors/etiology for each diagnosis and considerations for both therapy and pharm treatment. The photos are wonderful. I especially liked that they included oft overlooked contributory diagnostics like EEG changes (ex:slow wave common in some personality disorders) because really psychiatry should be holistic and diagnosis in psychiatry CAN AND SHOULD be an exact science relying upon more than the DSM-5. (steps down off of soapbox)
