Substantially revised to include a wealth of new material, the
second edition of this highly acclaimed work provides a concise,
coherent introduction that brings structure to an increasingly
fragmented and amorphous discipline. Paul R. McHugh and Phillip R.
Slavney offer an approach that emphasizes psychiatry's unifying
concepts while accommodating its diversity. Recognizing that there
may never be a single, all-encompassing theory, the book distills
psychiatric practice into four explanatory methods: diseases,
dimensions of personality, goal-directed behaviors, and life
stories. These perspectives, argue the authors, underlie the
principles and practice of all psychiatry. With an understanding of
these fundamental methods, readers will be equipped to organize and
evaluate psychiatric information and to develop a confident
approach to practice and research.
