The Stahl’s Illustrated books are a series of pocket-sized, mid-priced, themed volumes. They distil theoretical information from the Stahl’s Essential Psychopharmacology volume and combine this with practical data from The Prescriber’s Guide. They are illustration heavy and designed to encourage speedy learning of both concepts and applications. The visual learner will find that these books make the concepts easier to master, and the non-visual learner will appreciate the clear, shortened text on complex psychopharmacological concepts. This volume covers the latest developments in our understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety. As well as covering the full range of management options, there is a specific focus on the implications for military populations. The Stahl’s Illustrated series appeals to the widest possible audience of mental health professionals, and not just those with expertise in psychopharmacology.
