    Hardcover↠ Unhinged PDF ç unhinged book, Unhinged EpubI think that if I were not myself a psychiatrist and privy to much of the information Dr Carlat is as well as having had similar experiences I might have found this book engaging As it was it felt like reading a guidebook to your hometown written by a another townie who is eually aware of the terrain the locals and the pros and cons of the place There was little in this book I hadn't already contemplated myself I do take issue with the idea that all psychiatrists are on the same page or should be regarding attending medical school I specifically choose to work with very medically illfragile patients and collaborate with other physicians closely in their care I am freuently ruling out medical contributors to diagnoses performing neurological exams on patients and check for drug drug interactions I am also

    Hardcover↠ Unhinged PDF ç unhinged book, Unhinged EpubThe book’s subtitle basically says it allCarlat writes in clear accessible prose about a number of problems within the field of psychiatry First of all there is the slightly troublesome “procedure” for diagnosing mental illness Based on an interview with a patient a psychiatrist fairly subjectively using his observational skills and experience matches up what he sees in the patient with a description—essentially a list of symptoms—of one of the psychiatric conditions that appear in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association No laboratory or diagnostic imaging tests exist to diagnose menta

    Hardcover↠ Unhinged PDF ç unhinged book, Unhinged EpubAs books written by mainstream psychiatrists go this is one one of the best and most honest that I have read Daniel Carlat has had the courage to express his major concerns about psychiatry He has also discussed what he sees as his own inadeuacies that arise as a conseuence of psychiatry's limited training He acknowledges that he does not practice psychotherapy because he cannot ie he doesnt really know how He admits telling patients that antidepressants correct chemical imbalances not because he believes it but because patients want to think their doctors know what they are doing It seemed to me that Carlat really does this for his own benefit not wanting to admit to his patients that as he wrote he really has no idea how these substances act in the brainThe limited thinking characteristic of mainstream psychiatry surfaces freuently in the text For example he wonders what else other that biology could cau

    Hardcover↠ Unhinged PDF ç unhinged book, Unhinged EpubI feel that I learned a great deal about psychiatry from reading this book Why do psychiatrists only spend 20 minutes with each patient Insurance reimbursement answers that uestion More importantly the book describes how psychiatry differs from other medical fields insofar as the biological causes of mental illness are not well understood The author notes that finding the right prescription cocktail for any individual patient is really a trial and error process that is unfortunately influenced by drug reps and hired gun doctors payed to push certain drugs over othersThis isn't a jeremiad against psychiatry
