9780195313833: Prescriptions for the Mind: A Critical View of Contemporary Psychiatry

The practice of psychiatry has undergone great changes in recent years. In this book, Joel Paris, MD, a veteran psychiatrist, provides a fluently written and accessible "state-of-the-field" assessment. Himself a clinician, researcher, and teacher, Paris focuses on the most striking change within the field - the diverging roles of psychopharmacology and psychotherapy in contemporary practice. Where once psychiatrists were trained in Freudian psychoanalysis - which involved, more than anything else, talking - current pressures in mental health practice, including those imposed by managed care, are leading psychiatrists to treat more and more of their patients exclusively with medication, which is cheaper and faster. At the same time, psychotherapy is increasingly not being taught to new psychiatrists-in-training, even though, as Paris reveals, there is scientific evidence that both talk therapies and medication can play an important role in the treatment of mental illness. These developments are occuring against a backdrop of exploding research in the genetics and neurobiology of mental illness that will continue to drive the field. Paris ends by contemplating how going forward psychiatry can best respond to all these forces and proposes a team-based approach to mental health care. The book will appeal both to specialists and nonspecialists, particularly psychiatric residents and fellows, medical students considering specialization in psychiatry, clinical psychologists, social workers, and general readers, especially consumers of mental health services.

About the Author :

Joel Paris is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University.

Review :


"This is a bold, well-informed, articulate, and realistic assessment coming from an expert who explores the faults--and the smaller but still important advances--in psychiatry."--PsyCRITIQUES


"This is a multifaceted and thoughtful perspective on where psychiatry has been, where it is, and where it might be going, written by a leader on the journey."--New England Journal of Medicine


"Read Paris...and feel wiser. I recommend...to specialists and lay readers alike."--Todd Dusfrene, Professor of Philosophy and Research Chair at Lakehead University as reviewed in the Toronto Globe


"Accessible to anyone with an interest in the field, Prescriptions for the Mind provides a knowledgeable consideration of today's psychiatry by the experienced clinician, researcher and teacher, Joel Paris....Oftentimes, ideas about the future can be tiresomely unbelievable. Fabulously enough, Prescriptions for the Mind is not science fiction, but rather....sprinkled with optimism."--Metapsychology Online Reviews


"There is much about contemporary psychiatry to be worried about, and Dr. Paris is worried. Issues in diagnosis, matters of treatment, and how we work and are trained are all courageously addressed...I doubt that anyone will agree with all of his perspectives--I certainly did not--but I am sure that they will be respected as an honest effort to help the profession examine itself. This is the most critical aspect of the book...It is a service to the profession and to those who are trying to understand the profession and its work. I hope that many psychiatrists and people who care about psychiatry read this book and talk about it and about the big picture in front of us."--Kenneth S. Thompson, MD, as reviewed in Psychiatric Services
