Correctional psychiatry has received increasing recognition as an area of practice with unique skills and knowledge. The Oxford Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry brings together American and international experts to provide a comprehensive overview of the field. Students and psychiatric residents will find basic information that prepares them for clinical rotations, and psychiatrists working in jails and prisons will find a detailed review of the complex issues that arise in these settings.

The Oxford Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry contains 73 chapters divided into 14 sections. The first three sections address history, structure, and processes including chapters on case law, human rights, ethics, organization and funding of systems, and stages of patient management that cover initial assessments through re-entry. The next three sections review in turn a broad array of management issues, emergencies, and psychopharmacology topics. Among other topics, these sections include chapters on sleep, detoxification, reassessment of community diagnoses and treatments, diversion programs, levels of care, malingering, substance use within facilities, and formulary management. Section seven has chapters on common psychiatric disorders, relevant medical disorders, and pain management. Sections eight through ten focus on psychotherapeutic options, suicide risk management, and addictions treatment. Chapters on aggression, self-injury, and other behavioral challenges appear in Section eleven. Section twelve reviews unique assessment and treatment needs of many distinct population groups. Special topics such as forensics, psychological testing, sexual assaults, quality improvement, training, and research, appear in Section thirteen, followed by a section devoted to current resources in correctional healthcare.

The range of topics covered and the number of prominent contributors set this book apart from other available resources. Readers at all stages of their careers will gain the depth of understanding and practical information they need to approach all of the common clinical, organizational, and ethical challenges they face.

Reviews and Awards:

"At last, a truly comprehensive textbook on correctional psychiatry! Edited by well known leaders in correctional psychiatry, the Oxford Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry, addresses all aspects of correctional psychiatry, including little discussed, but critical and useful topics. Each chapter is concise, cogent, clearly written, and therefore remarkably easy, pleasureful to read. As a comprehensive text of the numerous mental health challenges as well as the structures, procedures, cultures and dynamics within correctional systems, the Oxford Textbook belongs in the professional library of every correctional clinician and administrator as well as every mental health, correctional health and forensic reference library." --Alan R. Felthous, Professor and Director of Forensic Psychiatry at Saint Louis University School of Medicine

"In this multi-authored text, editors Trestman, Appelbaum, and Metzner have put together an invaluable resource for all psychiatrists interested in treating patients in correctional psychiatry. I highly recommend this book for both novice and experienced practitioners." -- Jeffrey S. Janofsky, M.D., Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences, Director, Psychiatry and Law Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"Edited by three renowned correctional psychiatrists, Oxford Textbook of Correctional Psychiatry could not be timelier. This is the first textbook devoted solely to correctional psychiatry, which is now recognized as a critical component of community psychiatry. It is a superb resource and will, no doubt, be the Henry C. Weinstein, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center

"The editors have used their encyclopedic vision of correctional psychiatry along with a group of prominent contributors to create an outstanding resource. The text provides theoretical and practical insights into the clinical, legal and ethical issues that are relevant to correctional psychiatry and easily earns its place as a must read for forensic mental health professionals, educators, and trainees. Attorneys, administrators of jails and prisons, and policy makers will also find this well written text a valuable resource." -- J. Richard Ciccone, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
