Textbook of Psychiatry-Laura Weiss Roberts (7th Edition)

Brief Introduction

The Seventh Edition of The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry would continue to excel in the education of medical students, psychiatry residents, practicing psychiatrists, and colleagues in other subspecialties of medicine, as well as other mental health professionals. Upon reading the “galleys” of all the chapters of the Seventh Edition of the Textbook, we realized that our very high expectations for the future of the Textbook had been surpassed. If it is true that (in many ways) “past is prelude,” we believe that comparing the First Edition of the Textbook (Talbot et al. 1988) with the Seventh Edition (Roberts 2019) might provide some useful insights into how our field has remained the same in certain respects and how and why it has changed in other ways over the past 30 years. Given the understandable word limitations, we will touch upon only what we deem to be certain highlights in this consideration.

The psychiatric interview involves the development of a history of the patient’s present illness, a mental status examination (MSE), an assessment of dangerousness and substance use, and a differential diagnosis and treatment plan. Developmental, family, and social histories are also part of the initial interview, as is a history of prior psychiatric treatments and cooccurring medical conditions. A therapeutic alliance and a therapeutic effect are both reasonable expectations, as is some sort of psychological understanding of the patient. This information is generally compiled within an often-clunky electronic medical record. Such efforts are a challenge, especially when the clinician is also expected to be kind, tactful, patient, and friendly.
