Acclaimed for its thorough yet concise overview of the natural history of psychiatric disorders, Goodwin & Guze’s Psychiatric Diagnosis has been newly and extensively updated in this seventh edition. As in previous editions, each chapter systematically covers the definition, historical background, epidemiology, clinical picture, natural history, complications, family studies, differential diagnosis, and clinical management of each disorder. Terminology has been updated for consistency with changes made in DSM-5®. Recent epidemiologic and neurobiological findings are provided, including the long term course of mood disorders, genetics and neuroimaging of schizophrenia and mood and other disorders, cognitive changes in relation to depression and dementia, brain stimulation techniques, outcome studies of eating disorders, and epidemiology of substance use disorders.
