Review quote

"While most psychiatric books describe psychiatric disorders without the context of a patient, this book adds an extra dimension by describing mental illnesses in the context of a particular patient... The list of questions encourages readers to ask even more questions, prompting them to consider a wide variety of diagnoses, assessments, and treatment options... Among the excellent topics the book covers are the basic tenets of CBT, the CAGE questionnaire, and Schneider's first rank symptoms of schizophrenia... Medical students will find this to be an outstanding book, helping them to learn how to assess not just diseases, but the patients as well." -Doody's Core Titles
