Psychiatry: A Very Short Introduction

Second Edition

Tom Burns

Very Short Introductions

  • Psychiatry is increasingly a part of everyday life (think about Prozac, ADHD, Care in the Community) and this book provides a valuable and comprehensible introduction to the subject
  • Covers a broad range of topics, from the main illnesses and their identification, to the history of their treatment, and the future of the discipline
  • Tom Burns was the psychiatric advisor to the UK Parliamentary committee scrutinising the UK Mental Health Bill
  • Part of the best-selling Very Short Introductions series - millions of copies sold worldwide

New to this Edition:

  • Considers recent social changes in psychiatry and the issues psychiatry needs to combat today, such as the fact that women are no longer to be relied on as carers, and the problems associated with ageing populations and the challenge of dementia
  • Includes new material on scientific advances, such as Virtual Reality in both diagnosis and treatment, and artificial intelligence
