Section 1 addresses the foundation of the various psychiatric disorders in 10 chapters describing basic principles in psychiatry and reviewing the measurement, psychobiology, and genetics of psychiatric disorders. The second section follows DSM-IV, covering problems related to diagnosis and treatment of specific clinical disorders. It contains 56 chapters, each of which has a brief literature review on the disorder and directly discusses treatment methods (that is, medication management) and issues related to treatment (blood level, use of psychosocial interventions). The third section discusses newer developments in psychiatry in 22 chapters. Here the emphasis is on the latest pharmacological approaches to treatment. Current Psychiatric Therapy II also has material not found in the first edition. New chapters include information regarding personality testing, cross-cultural issues in psychiatry, and medical issues such as treating pregnant women.
