The Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry is a new book directed at medical students, doctors coming to psychiatry for the first time, psychiatric trainees, and other professionals who may have to deal with patients with psychiatric problems. It is written by a group of experienced, middle-grade psychiatrists and is designed to provide easy access to the information required by psychiatry trainees on the wards or on-call. It closely follows the familiar format of the other Oxford Handbooks, and provides coverage that is comprehensive, evidence based and practical. The content of the handbook is written in the concise, note-based style characteristic of the series, with topics confined to single pages. The book is divided into four sections: Fundamentals of Psychiatric Practice; General Adult Psychiatry; Psychiatric Subspecialties; and Useful Reference Material. Within each chapter, topics are covered in a clear logical manner. For the clinical disorders there is detailed information on the etiology, epidemiology, clinical features, common differential diagnoses, assessment/investigation, management, and prognosis. There is an in-depth coverage of psychiatric assessment, psychopathology, evidence-based practice, mental health legislation in the UK, therapeutic issues, transcultural psychiatry, and eponyms in psychiatry. The book is internally cross-referenced and has both key references to important papers and to further information resources. As well as being indexed alphabetically, it is also indexed by ICD-10/DSM-IV codes, and there is a quick index for acute presentations. This Handbook is practical and directive in style, designed to provide portable reassurance to doctors beginning psychiatry. There is helpful advice for the management of difficult and urgent situations, and the text is peppered with clinical observations on the practice of clinical psychiatry and guidance based upon the experience of the authors.

Psychiatrists have written much about the explosive expansion of scientific knowledge of the brain which developed over the late 20th century and the early 21st century. Comparatively little has been written within the field of psychiatry about the changes in society and world culture over this same period, and even less on the scope of psychiatric ethics that would account for these changes. Yet psychiatric ethics is an excellent framework in which to examine social changes in the field over the past 25 years, changes which are dramatic in nature and profound in impact.0Some of these social changes include multiculturalism and its associated diversity of values; the transition to the digital era with its new demands on confidentiality, clinical boundaries, and privacy; the empowerment of psychiatric service users as full participants and co-producers of care; the development of new technologies of assessment and treatment, varying in their invasiveness and risk; the recognition of expanded social roles for psychiatrists, and the associated virtues of psychiatric citizenship; and the development of new practice models, settings, participants, and oversight, all of which represent profound challenges and opportunities for the ethical practice of psychiatry. The 'Oxford Handbook of Psychiatric Ethics' is the most comprehensive treatment of the field in history.

Intellectual Disability (ID) describes a lifelong condition of heterogeneous aetiology, associated with the impairment of intellectual functioning (IQ 70), significant impairment of adaptive skills, and onset before the age of 18 years. People with ID experience significant physical andmental health problems like associated sensory/motor impairments and epilepsy, some of which are contributed to by underlying primary causes. Psychiatric problems are also three times more common in people with ID in comparison to the general population.The psychiatry of ID is a core part of training to be a psychiatrist yet there are limited resources on this topic aimed at both trainees and practising clinicians alike. Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability bridges this gap by providing up-to-date evidence-based content onthe assessment, diagnosis, and management of psychiatry in people with ID.Featuring 28 chapters written by international experts in the field, the Oxford Textbook of the Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability presents fresh global insight and coverage of the subject. Chapters cover key topics from the developmental aspects of ID, mental disorders in childhood, andbehaviour phenotypes, through to physical health, dementia and other disorders associated with ageing.Each chapter provides trustworthy evidence and a wealth of practical advice for clinical situations, including case studies in community and hospital settings, and multiple choice questions for self-evaluation and consolidation of knowledge.
