Goodwin and Guze psychiatric diagnosis (

I'm a psychiatry intern, and this is the book I read every night. Very will written and both easy and enjoyable to read. It really helps conceptualize the psychiatric assessment.

Psychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience

This is what it sounds like, helps you remember that psychiatry still has roots in neurology.

Personally I love Stahl's pharm book. It has pictures, it's concise, and it's mostly right. If you get to the point where it's not answering your question you're probably past textbooks anyway and need to hop on PubMed.

So I think you are looking more for a psychological framework of mind, cognition, and behavior. However, I will add a good starting point for the philosophy of mind. Philosophy of Mind: a guide and anthology, is the text that was used in my Philosophy of Mind class in undergrad. It is a selection of writings from some of the greatest minds in philosophy. You can think of the philosophy of mind as kind of a meta-science, examining the basic foundations of our theories.

Although older, Bruce Cohen's general textbook is VERY well-written and a good solid intro that I still recommend to MS 3's and 4's.

u/Alvin_Ailey1 · 9 pointsr/Psychiatry

Yeah, this. One cannot be separated from the other.

But Nancy McWilliam's "Psychoanalytic Diagnosis" is the classic. The new Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual is also good.

I know that many of the early (last decade) EEG studies covering mood states and functional networks in bipolar disorder are covered in this book, which highlights some more general approaches based on experimental data.

For more academics, I would vouch for starting off somewhere like here for a review of BD in general, particularly network activity in euthymia and with a history of psychosis. These (1, 2) seem to cover the main bases for pathological states. The is a nice convergence of PET, EEG, and fMRI data over the past few years so if you're finding yourself wandering down one modality rabbit hole its worth checking out the others for completeness.

There's a few colouring books out there that help familiarize folks with the anatomy of the brain. This one is a classic.

pwBPD here, my absolute favorite, in that it reflects my experience of the disorder and also gave a good background on the state of research, is Borderline Personality Disorder: New Reasons for Hope, Johns Hopkins Press, by Drs. Patrick Kelly and Francis Mondimore

How "quick" are you looking for? If you want to be done in under a half hour then Psych Lite might be what you're looking for. If you've got about an hour then try Psychiatry Made Ridiculously Simple. If you've got a full day, Oxford Handbook of Psychiatry may be the way to go.

u/misunderstandingly · 1 pointr/Psychiatry

You might wan to read this book; - it's a harshly critical look at the modern psychiatric practitioner's reliance on drug based treatements.

Also - for what it is worth - my Sister In Law is a VA psychologist. In her job she is the "one who councils and works with the veterans" and the staff psychologist is the one who "gives them their drugs". As a layman this seems to be a pretty common state of affairs.

I don't know how to link to a comment but here is a reply to a post I

My only experience with a US psychiatrist was "Here take these meds, let me know how they work in a week." I came back in a week and said they were working good. He then proceeded to give me a 3 month prescription. Hardly any talking at all after he made sure i wasn't suicidal.

"Borderline Personality Disorder: New Reasons for Hope" from Johns Hopkins press is more up to date and evidence based. (Sauce: am person with BPD)

Some other people who have done similar things:

BBC video about psychologist Rufus May who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and his work with a medical student who was hearing voices:

TED talk by psychologist Eleanor Longden who hears voices:

Pacific Standard Magazine article about Professor Nev Jones who has also experienced psychosis. Helpful in revealing struggles students with mental health challenges can experience in academia:

Ahmed Hankir writing about his experience with mental illness while working to become a psychiatrist:

Psychologist Pat Deegan talking about carrying the diagnosis of schizophrenia:

Mark Vonnegut a pediatrician, has written two books about his experience with psychosis. Here is one of them:

Stephen Hinshaw put together an anthology with mental health professionals writing about their personal or family experiences with mental illness:

A number of people in my psychiatric nurse practitioner program had experienced mental health problems, and at least one faculty member shared about her experience with psychosis and depression. Take care of yourself and go for it!

I am an epidemiologist and medical student. My cousin and close friend developed schizophrenia. The resources above contain the actual science. Up To Date is a good place to start, but you really should talk to a physician. Self-diagnosing is a very very bad idea.

u/MattAndersomm · 3 pointsr/Psychiatry is a recommended reading on depression by Nancy McWilliams in her book

And in her book you will find that besides guilt and depression another strong pairing is shame and depression. And based on persons dynamic therapeutic approach is different.

As much as people will recognize Freud more, I'd suggest reading modern authors.

The Illustrated Mum by Jaqueline Wilson

"In The Illustrated Mum, Wilson introduces us to Dolphin, a young girl living in the wake of her tattooed mother Marigold's manic depression. With her older sister, Star, on the brink of adulthood and facing the traumas of adolescence, and her mum sinking further and further into her illness, Dol has no-one to turn to when the constant bullying at school causes her to withdraw into her own world, and she begins to cope with the reality of her life by fantasising that she is a witch."

I'm schizoaffective and I used to watch the tv movie of this with my daughter when she was small. Really good for all ages! Here's the link for the paperback or the movie is on youtube (in several parts).
