Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders, Fifth Edition

Edited by Glen O. Gabbard, M.D.

  • ISBN 978-1-58562-442-3
  • Item #62442


The definitive treatment textbook in psychiatry, this fifth edition of Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders has been thoroughly restructured to reflect the new DSM-5® categories, preserving its value as a state-of-the-art resource and increasing its utility in the field. The editors have produced a volume that is both comprehensive and concise, meeting the needs of clinicians who prefer a single, user-friendly volume. In the service of brevity, the book focuses on treatment over diagnostic considerations, and addresses both empirically-validated treatments and accumulated clinical wisdom where research is lacking.

Noteworthy features include the following:

  • Content is organized according to DSM-5® categories to make for rapid retrieval of relevant treatment information for the busy clinician.
  • Outcome studies and expert opinion are presented in an accessible way to help the clinician know what treatment to use for which disorder, and how to tailor the treatment to the patient.
  • Content is restricted to the major psychiatric conditions seen in clinical practice while leaving out less common conditions and those that have limited outcome research related to the disorder, resulting in a more streamlined and affordable text.
  • Chapters are meticulously referenced and include dozens of tables, figures, and other illustrative features that enhance comprehension and recall.

An authoritative resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychiatric nurses, and an outstanding reference for students in the mental health professions, Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders, Fifth Edition, will prove indispensable to clinicians seeking to provide excellent care while transitioning to a DSM-5® world.

About the Authors

Glen O. Gabbard, M.D., is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and Professor of Psychiatry at State University of New York in Syracuse. He is also Training and Supervising Analyst at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies in Houston.

This is an absolutely stellar collection of treatment reviews across the full spectrum of mental disorders. It beautifully complements the recently published DSM-5 by providing up-to-date summaries of evidence bearing upon the treatment and management of mental disorders. Its editor, Glen Gabbard, is a clinical scholar and teacher of immense stature who has shown exquisite judgment in his choice of authors for the reviews that comprise this fifth volume of the series he initiated. Dr. Gabbard has chosen many of the world’s best clinician-scientists to prepare these chapters. The net effect is a first rate bridging of science and service. Kudos, and thanks, to Dr. Gabbard for the legacy he has created.—Charles F. Reynolds, III M.D., University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Director, UPMC/Pitt Aging Institute

Gabbard has led his co-editors to produce a monumental, encyclopedic collection of the clinical knowledge that constitutes contemporary psychiatric practice. No piece of evidence is ignored, and no point of view overlooked. The sum of clinical wisdom exceeds its individual parts. The book provides clear guideposts that both experienced and beginning clinicians can use for their patients’ betterment.—Robert Freedman, M.D., Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry, University of Colorado School of Medicine; Editor, American Journal of Psychiatry
