Psychiatric Mental Status Examination

Download Presentation

During my first two years working in adult mental health, I have found this book to be an invaluable resource in my day to day practice. Not only is it an excellent dictionary from which to draw when writing MSEs, it also explains just about every mental state term that one might come across in psychiatry. It has also been a particularly good tool for use in teaching and student supervision. A must for the psychiatry reference library.

This is one of my favorite reference books. It describes how to do a good mental status exam in very clear language. It provides definitions of all the terms used in the process and gives well-written examples of their use. The authors help you to develop a good conceptual understanding of how to assess and describe a person's mental status. A valuable primer for social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists.

This book contains a lot of information, and although I'm just beginning a graduate program, it has served as a helpful resource numerous times. It is very descriptive about each part of the MSE and what all is included; it also contains a wonderful glossary section. It is definitely helpful to use when writing up the mental status portion of diagnostic reports. All in all, this is an extremely helpful resource for clinicians, graduate students in the mental health field, and psychologists.
