Summary
"This handbook was written to fill the need for a brief, introductory text of psychiatry as a quick reference for psychiatric residents, medical and psychological interns, medical students, nurses, and others whose work in the psychiatric clinic and hospital may be for a brief period of time. The psychiatric house officer who will spend several years training in the field is called upon in the first weeks of his residency both to diagnose and to treat. This handbook is designed to serve as a ready reference during this initial period of specialty training and until he has had sufficient time to become acquainted with more extensive treatises. With these workers in mind, the book has been made small enough to fit in the side pocket of the clinic coat. It has been written also for the general practitioner who is having his attention increasingly directed to the psychological problems of his patients and who must, in view of the shortage of psychiatrists, often provide early care for those of his patients who develop mental illness. In this text theory is kept to a minimum. The material is organized into three general areas: (a) history taking and diagnostic procedures; (b) clinical syndromes; and (c) therapeutic measures. In the Table of Contents, which follows immediately, one who is unfamiliar with the field can find the general area of his interest at the moment, and then focus upon the page or two devoted to material with which he is specifically concerned. In addition, an alphabetized general index is provided at the end of the book. All sections have been made as brief as possible. We have tried throughout to present the eclectic approach to psychiatry that has been fostered through the teachings of Dr. Edwin F. Gildea"--Preface.
