About this title

  • New edition of this indispensable handbook for all psychiatric trainees, brought fully up-to-date with psychiatric practice in the UK
  • Includes a new chapter on mental health law, making this difficult topic accessible to trainees
  • Covers all common interview situations, with all guidelines backed up by references to the evidence

New to this Edition:

  • A new chapter covers mental health law in England and Wales. It explains the duties law places on health systems and professionals to support patients to make decisions about their own health, and also explains the legal frameworks in place for children and people with mental illness or other conditions who may require others to decide their health care.
  • Recent developments have meant that the chapters on the psychosocial assessment in adults, the neuropsychiatric assessment, and special problems and treatment have been thoroughly revised.

The Maudsley Handbook of Practical Psychiatry has long served trainees in psychiatry, presenting them with practical and essential advice. This new edition of the orange book provides guidance on the psychiatric and neuropsychiatric examination and interviewing of adults and children not just as a central skill, but as the basis for reaching a diagnosis, formulation and defining a treatment plan. 

It covers special interview situations, such as dealing with specific patient reactions, and other special problems, for example, conducting a complicated assessment in cases of self-harm. The book concludes with important legal issues and is supported by helpful appendices for ready-reference.

As with previous editions, this sixth edition has been revised and rewritten with the full and active involvement of a group of consultant psychiatrists and trainees, making it a highly relevant and practical handbook for all psychiatrists whether learning or refreshing their skills.

Authors: Gareth Owen, Simon Wessely, and Robin Murray
