While there are a number of books on positive psychology, Positive Psychiatry is unique in its biological foundation and medical rigor and is the only book designed to bring positive mental health ideas and interventions into mainstream psychiatric research, training, and clinical practice. After an overview describing the definition, history, and goals of positive psychiatry, the contributors—pioneers and thought leaders in the field—explore positive psychosocial factors, such as resilience and psychosocial growth; positive outcomes, such as recovery and well-being; psychotherapeutic and behavioral interventions, among others; and special topics, such as child and geriatric psychiatry, diverse populations, and bioethics. The book successfully brings the unique skill sets and methods of psychiatry to the larger positive health movement. Each chapter highlights key points for current clinical services, as practiced by psychiatrists, primary care doctors, and nurses, as well as those in allied health and mental health fields. These readers will find Positive Psychiatry to be immensely helpful in bringing positive mental health concepts and interventions into the clinical arena.

Clinically oriented and highly practical, the Handbook of Clinical Rating Scales and Assessment in Psychiatry and Mental Health is an ideal tool for the busy psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, family physician, or social worker. In this ground-breaking text, leading researchers provide reviews of the most commonly used outcome and screening measures for the major psychiatric diagnoses and treatment scenarios. The full range of psychiatric disorders are covered in brief but thorough chapters, each of which provides a concise review of measurement issues related to the relevant condition, along with recommendations on which dimensions to measure – and when. The Handbook also includes ready-to-photocopy versions of the most popular, valid, and reliable scales and checklists, along with scoring keys and links to websites containing on-line versions. Moreover, the Handbook describes well known, structured, diagnostic interviews and the specialized training requirements for each. It also includes details of popular psychological tests (such as neuropsychological, personality, and projective tests), along with practical guidelines on when to request psychological testing, how to discuss the case with the assessment consultant and how to integrate information from the final testing report into treatment. Focused and immensely useful, the Handbook of Clinical Rating Scales and Assessment in Psychiatry and Mental Health is an invaluable resource for all clinicians who care for patients with psychiatric disorders.

One of the most challenging clinical settings any psychiatrist faces is in the area of psychiatric emergency services. Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry is designed to help medical students, residents, and clinical faculty chart the appropriate course of treatment in a setting where an incorrect assessment can have life and death implications. Written collaboratively by residents, students, and faculty from various departments of psychiatry in the United States and Canada, Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry covers those topics that are generally the most important and practical in any busy psychiatric emergency department. Equally important, the chapters are arranged by chief complaint rather than by psychiatric diagnosis, and each contains an important summary that can provide clarity quickly when seconds count. This format gives the trainee the ability to quickly find key points for treating the clinical situation. In addition, this text serves as a backup to faculty, and combines the approach of accomplished psychiatry trainees with the views of senior practitioners in the field. Trainees working in the high-stress psychiatric emergency setting often only have backup supervision by phone rather than in-person oversight. Evaluation of patients in busy psychiatry emergency departments, where first- and second-year residents are quickly trying to address complicated clinical situations with patients who are very ill, is a challenging and difficult process. In response to the specific demands of the psychiatric emergency setting, the authors, under the editorship of Drs. Michelle B. Riba and Divy Ravindranath, made this manual easy to read and clearly focused on presenting complaints. In Clinical Manual of Emergency Psychiatry, trainees and faculty will find: Case vignettes of applicable clinical scenarios. A reflection of widespread practices in various academic centers. Chapters arranged by chief complaint rather than psychiatric diagnosis. Key point summaries at the end of each chapter. An integrated perspective from trainees and experienced psychiatrists. In addition, many of the chapters in this book underscore the potential for "medical mimics" to cause the presenting complaints, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, catatonia, and cognitive impairment. The recognition that comorbid conditions are often present is critical to the complete assessment of patients in a psychiatric emergency setting. This book is a must-have for any psychiatric trainee or faculty who works in the often tense and high-stakes psychiatric emergency setting. Patients and families are anxious and fearful, and available clinical information may be sparse or unavailable. The guidelines and approaches outlined in this handbook will be useful to psychiatric students and teachers alike as they work to provide excellent care in the difficult clinical psychiatric emergency situations they encounter.
