This book presents an authoritative overview of the emerging field of person-centered psychiatry. This perspective, articulating science and humanism, arose within the World Psychiatric Association and aims to shift the focus of psychiatry from organ and disease to the whole person within their individual context. It is part of a broader person-centered perspective in medicine that is being advanced by the International College of Person-Centered Medicine through the annual Geneva Conferences held since 2008 in collaboration with the World Medical Association, the World Health Organization, the International Council of Nurses, the International Federation of Social Workers, and the International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations, among 30 other international health institutions.In this book, experts in the field cover all aspects of person-centered psychiatry, the conceptual keystones of which include ethical commitment; a holistic approach; a relationship focus; cultural sensitivity; individualized care; establishment of common ground among clinicians, patients, and families for joint diagnostic understanding and shared clinical decision-making; people-centered organization of services; and person-centered health education and research.

Psychiatric diagnosis is one of the most important topics withinthe broad field of psychiatry. Clear, accurate definitions of thevarious disorders are essential for clinicians around the world tobe confident that they are classifying patients in the same way,thereby enabling comparisons of treatment regimens and theiroutcomes. There are two major classification systems in use, oneproduced by the World Health Organization, the WHO InternationalClassification of Diseases, Mental Disorders Chapter, and one bythe American Psychiatric Association, the well known Diagnostic andStatistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Both of these are beingrevised so this book from the prestigious World PsychiatricAssociation is especially timely.

It begins by addressing mental health andillness around the world from historical, philosophical andcultural perspectives.

Section III concentrates on the complex problem ofcomorbidity, a primary challenge for modern diagnosticclassifications in psychiatry. Finally, Section IV reviews emerginginternational diagnostic systems in psychiatry, consideringinnovative models and adaptations.

This book will be essential reading for anyone involved in thediagnosis of psychiatric disorders.

With all the attention heaped upon the most deadly sexually transmitted infection of all, HIV, other non-fatal forms of infection have been somewhat neglected, and even overlooked in sexual education. However, incidences of STIs such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea have been dramatically and silently rising in many parts of the world in recent years - though receiving far less attention. It is now recognized that this is a major public health issue, affecting thousands of people, irrespective of background, education or social class. In Sexually Transmitted Infections: The Facts, David Barlow, for thirty years a consultant physician at a large London teaching hospital, describes, in a readable, sensible and light style, the common and rare conditions which are seen in clinic. Case histories drawn from real patients illustrate many of the pitfalls and problems that can arise from misunderstanding how diseases such as herpes or genital warts are transmitted. An important and novel section explains how and why the seemingly reliable tests from a hospital laboratory can be misleading and, in many cases, actually wrong. This new edition has been brought up-to-date with coverage of the new HPV vaccine for cervical cancer, recent work on the aetiology of bacterial vaginosis, evidence on the treatment and management of genital herpes simplex, and a totally revived section on HIV and AIDS. Using the early section on symptoms, the reader is rapidly pointed to the relevant section of the book for explanations and reassurance. Providing essential information on all the main forms of sexually transmitted infections, the book delivers essential, accessible, pragmatic, information that should be read by all adults.
