New to the fourth edition of this textbook is expanded coverage of dementia and general updating of all the chapters. The chapters are organized according to DSM-IV-TR, with 57 chapters by psychiatrists in the US and Canada. A brief introduction by the section editor begins each section. The chapters contain a description of the condition, indications and contraindications for diagnosis, treatments, side effects, and full bibliography. Strictly relying on traditional psychiatry and pharmacotherapy, no mention is made of alternative medicine or treatments. Gabbard directs the Psychiatry Clinic at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
