About this book


This book presents an authoritative overview of individualized psychiatry. The text shifts the focus of psychiatry from organ and disease to the whole person as a part of a broader person-centered perspective in medicine.  Written by experts in the field, the text covers the conceptual keystones of that include ethical commitment, a holistic approach, a relationship focus, cultural sensitivity, individualized care, establishment of common ground among clinicians, patients, and families for joint diagnostic understanding and shared clinical decision-making, people-centered organization of services, and person-centered health education and research. ​

Person-Centered Psychiatry is an excellent resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, primary care physicians, social workers, and all medical professionals working in mental health.
