Psychiatry and Pedopsychiatry presents a comprehensive view of the field. It especially elaborates on pedopsychiatry in detail, which is very important in the context of the discipline’s gaining independence.
The book covers the field of psychiatry in its breadth, including new information in the field and outlooks for the future. It also addresses areas that are usually not sufficiently described in Czech textbooks, yet which are necessary both for the clinical practice and for students’ knowledge, such as
• psychiatric issues of somatic diseases and consultative psychiatry,
• resocialization and community care,
• the field’s organization with a proposal of a necessary reform,
• urgent problems in psychiatry,
• psychosomatic medicine,
• nursing care in psychiatry.
The textbook also presents topics which have permeated the entire field of medicine – ethical aspects, suicidality and minorities. Scholars devote a large space to the communication with the patients from many respects, which is very important in the contemporary, technology-oriented time.
Thanks to its broad scope, this book is suitable not only for medical students, but also for doctors who want to focus on psychiatry and specialists in other medical fields.
