Following the success of the first two volumes in Stahl's Case Studies series, a brand new collection of clinical stories have been collated in Volume 3, derived from cases seen by medical students, residents and faculty from the University of California at Riverside (UCR) Department of Psychiatry and Neuroscience. The highly popular and unique user-friendly presentation of previous volumes has been maintained, with extensive use of icons, questions/answers, and tips. The cases address multifaceted issues in an understandable way and with direct relevance to the everyday experience of clinicians. Covering a wide-ranging and representative selection of clinical scenarios, each case is followed through the complete clinical encounter, from start to resolution, acknowledging all the complications, issues, decisions, twists and turns along the way. The book is about living through the treatments that work, the treatments that fail, and the mistakes made along the journey. This is psychiatry in real life.
