The 'New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry' is one of the leading reference works in this field. Bringing together over 200 chapters from the leading figures in the discipline, it presents a comprehensive account of clinical psychiatry, with reference to its scientific basis and to the patient's perspective throughout. In the 8 years since publication of the first edition, many new and exciting developments have occurred in the biological sciences, which are having a major impact on how we study and practise psychiatry. In addition, psychiatry has fostered closer ties with philosophy, and these are leading to healthy discussions about how we should diagnose and treat mental illness. This new edition recognises these and other developments. Throughout, accounts of clinical practice are linked to the underlying science, and to the evidence for the efficacy of treatments. Physical and psychological treatments, including psychodynamic approaches, are covered in depth. The history of psychiatry, ethics, public health aspects, and public attitudes to psychiatry and to patients are all given due attention. The 'New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry' will continue to serve the profession as an authoritative and comprehensive reference.

Intellectual Disability (ID) describes a lifelong condition of heterogeneous aetiology, associated with the impairment of intellectual functioning (IQ 70), significant impairment of adaptive skills, and onset before the age of 18 years. People with ID experience significant physical andmental health problems like associated sensory/motor impairments and epilepsy, some of which are contributed to by underlying primary causes.

Chapters cover key topics from the developmental aspects of ID, mental disorders in childhood, andbehaviour phenotypes, through to physical health, dementia and other disorders associated with ageing.Each chapter provides trustworthy evidence and a wealth of practical advice for clinical situations, including case studies in community and hospital settings, and multiple choice questions for self-evaluation and consolidation of knowledge.

Inpatient mental health care is an essential part of community-based mental health care in the UK. Patients admitted to acute mental health wards are often experiencing high levels of distress and acute mental illness and need to be assessed, managed, and treated by a wide team of mental health care professionals.

The Oxford Textbook of Inpatient Psychiatry bridges this gap by offering a comprehensive and pragmatic guide to the UK's inpatient mental health care system today. Written and edited by a multidisciplinary team, this innovative resource discusses the real-life experiences and challenges of a wide range of professionals working on acute mental health wards.

Individual chapters address key topics such as the management of children and adolescents, and contain information on up-to-date research and best practice.

Prevention of mental illness and mental health promotion have often been ignored in the past, both in undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Recently, however, there has been a clear shift towards public mental health, as a result of increasing scientific evidence that both these actions have a serious potential to reduce the onset of illness and subsequent burden as a result of mental illness and related social, economic and political costs. A clear distinction between prevention of mental illness and mental health promotion is critical. Selective prevention, both at societal and individual level, is an important way forward. The Oxford Textbook of Public Mental Health brings together the increasing interest in public mental health and the growing emphasis on the prevention of mental ill health and promotion of well-being into a single comprehensive textbook. Comprising international experiences of mental health promotion and mental well-being, chapters are supplemented with practical examples and illustrations to provide the most relevant information succinctly. This book will serve as an essential resource for mental and public health professionals, as well as for commissioners of services, nurses and community health visitors.
