Psychology for Psychiatrists covers the aspects of psychology that would be of interest and value to the psychiatrist. This book is composed of 19 chapters, and begins with discussions on the basic research concepts of descriptive statistics, reliability and validity, and drugs research design. The succeeding chapters consider the problems in clinical psychology, including test of thought disorder, organicity, projective techniques, and questionnaires and rating scales. These tests will enable the psychiatrist to better evaluate the received information from clinical psychologists. Other chapters describe the methods and concepts that the clinical psychiatrist may find immediate value in the work. The concluding chapters explore the areas of study that are probably of primary interest to the research psychiatrist and to which they have also contributed. These areas include sleep, hypnosis, and sensory and emotional deprivation. This book is of value to psychologist, and research and clinical psychiatrists.
