Correctional psychiatry has received increasing recognition as an
area of practice with unique skills and knowledge. The Oxford
Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry brings together American and
international experts to provide a comprehensive overview of the
field. Students and psychiatric residents will find basic
information that prepares them for clinical rotations, and
psychiatrists working in jails and prisons will find a detailed
review of the complex issues that arise in these settings. The
Oxford Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry contains 73 chapters
divided into 14 sections. The first three sections address history,
structure, and processes including chapters on case law, human
rights, ethics, organization and funding of systems, and stages of
patient management that cover initial assessments through re-entry.
The next three sections review in turn a broad array of management
issues, emergencies, and psychopharmacology topics. Among other
topics, these sections include chapters on sleep, detoxification,
reassessment of community diagnoses and treatments, diversion
programs, levels of care, malingering, substance use within
facilities, and formulary management. Section seven has chapters on
common psychiatric disorders, relevant medical disorders, and pain
management. Sections eight through ten focus on psychotherapeutic
options, suicide risk management, and addictions treatment.
Chapters on aggression, self-injury, and other behavioral
challenges appear in Section eleven. Section twelve reviews unique
assessment and treatment needs of many distinct population groups.
Special topics such as forensics, psychological testing, sexual
assaults, quality improvement, training, and research, appear in
Section thirteen, followed by a section devoted to current
resources in correctional healthcare. The range of topics covered
and the number of prominent contributors set this book apart from
other available resources. Readers at all stages of their careers
will gain the depth of understanding and practical information they
need to approach all of the common clinical, organizational, and
ethical challenges they face. This print edition of Oxford Textbook
of Correctional Psychiatry comes with a year's access to the online
