Users and Abusers of Psychiatry is a radically different, critical account of the day-to-day practice of psychiatry. Using real-life examples and her own experience as a clinical psychologist, Lucy Johnstone argues that the traditional way of treating mental illness can often exacerbate people's original difficulties leaving them powerless, disabled and distressed. In this completely revised and updated second edition, she draws on a range of evidence to present a very different understanding of psychiatric breakdown than that found in standard medical textbooks. Users and Abusers of Psychiatry is a challenging but ultimately inspiring read for all who are involved in mental health - whether as professionals, students, service users, relatives or interested lay people.

The 8th ed of this title incorporates significant changes to make it a useful general psychiatry text going forward to the new millennium. The last edition was the first text to incorporate the final DSM-IV nosology, and this edition augments this with ICD-10 diagnostic coding, mandated for reimbursement under the Medicare system, as well as many government agencies and third party payers. This edition is the most visually appealing, with a second colour added, highlighting coding additions and other features. In addition, as usual, the new version of synopsis captures current thinking on the diagnosis and treatment of mental and emotional disorders, with new material added on psychiatric aspects of alternative medical therapies; at least 6 new drugs, with substantial updating of all drug therapy information; a new chapter on childhood substance abuse; one on legal and ethical issues in child psychiatry; and a new chapter on obesity
