review Shrink Rap

Finally a book that explains everything you ever wanted to know about psychiatryIn Shrink Rap three psychiatrists from different specialties provide frank answers to uestions such as What is psychotherapy how does it work and why don't all psychiatrists do it When are medications helpful What happens on a psychiatric unit Can Prozac make people suicidal Why do many doctors not like Xana I selected this book from the Vine program because I thought I knew a lot about psychiatry I am a public defender who has successfully employed an insanity defense at a probation violation hearing I work with forensic psychologists on a regular basis and my brother is a psychiatrist himself I was pleasantly surprised then to find so many surprises in this terrific bookThe book is co written by three authors who try hard to develop a collaborative voice they are successful although there is some repetition between chapters that would likely have been ironed out with fewer authors and while the tone of the book is often dry and academic the authors are faithful to inject humanity and humor wherever possible For example there is a chapter about possible dangers of unprofessional psychiatry experiences and their poor hypothetical patient goes from being a life draining borderline to an over the top drug dealing split personality with unsubstantiated claims of childhood molestation and while they clearly take their job seriously this is a time when they just have some fun spinning out worst case scenarios The book also has helpful and straightforward chapters ranging from how someone decides to seek treatment to how psychiatric medications work to how psychiatrists get paid There are many hypothetical patients and doctors to allow the authors to really illustrate their points and if no chapter provides an exhaustive discussion of the topic each is thorough enough that I really felt like I learned somethingI expected this book to be interesting and I was surprised to find it fantastic This should be a textbook in every college Psychology 101 course and anyone with any connection at all to the mental health system will love it

Charge to the controversial involuntary hospitalization The authors face the field's shortcomings head on revealing what other doctors may not admit about practicing psychiatryCandid and humorous Shrink Rap gives a closeup view of psychiatry peering into technology treatments and the business of the field If you've ever wondered how psychiatry really works let the Shrink Rappers explai I thought this would be a in depth exploration of psychiatrists and how they approach certain problems Instead it reads like a high school level class on what psychiatry actually is There was nothing insightful in the book The only people I can imagine getting use out of this book would be those who think they might want to see a psychiatrist but know nothing about it and want to learn or maybe family members of people seeing psychiatrists who know nothing about it It was not useful or interesting to me at all

    I'm not sure I'm the intended audience for this book but I did get through it uickly and without complaint I see it as a good discussion of psychiatry in various forms and in mostly laymans terms Much of the information was stuff I know from psych classes and from personal experience with the mental health system but there is certainly value in hearing from a doctor's perspective I'm already pretty familiar
