TEXTBOOK IN PSYCHIATRIC EPIDEMIOLOGY Edited by Ming T. Tsuang, Mauricio Tohen and Gwendolyn E. P. Zahner

A solid background in psychiatric epidemiology is essential for mental health specialists in either clinical or research settings. Including contributions from the major training centers in the United States, Textbook in Psychiatric Epidemiology offers a comprehensive overview of this field. It covers the essential practical and theoretical aspects of this area to provide an ideal text for teaching and training.

The book opens with a summary of the history of psychiatric epidemiology. The text is then organized into three main sections: Study Designs and Methods, Assessment, and Epidemiology of Major Psychiatric Disorders. The first two sections feature detailed descriptions of the design of psychiatric studies, the interpretation of results, the evaluation of the validity/reliability of study measures, and the implementation of key professional resources such as the DSM-IV. The final section is a compilation of current epidemiological data on the major psychiatric disorders.

Specific topics covered in this textbook include:

  • Research designs
  • Analysis of categorized data
  • Assessing reliability and validity
  • Selecting the proper diagnostic instrument
  • Research on mental health services and epidemiology of psychiatric comorbidity
  • DSM-IV and its role in psychiatric epidemiology
  • Epidemiology of psychosis, bipolar disorder, depression/anxiety, substance abuse or dependence, personality disorders, and psychiatric disorders in geriatric populations

Textbook in Psychiatric Epidemiology is an authoritative resource for graduate or medical students in psychiatry, psychology, and allied mental health disciplines. With its extensive coverage of research methodologies, this book will also appeal to epidemiologists, biostatisticians, sociologists, health policy researchers, and public health professionals.
