    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

    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

    A little bit sluggish to get through from start to finish so skipped around a bit Some parts were off; for example the explanations about commitment are something that can vary greatly depending on state but overall ok introduction to different sorts of patients and how psychiatrists work in different situations

X Why do we have an insanity defense Why do people confess to crimes they didn't commitBased on the authors' hugely popular blog and podcast series this book is for patients and everyone else who is curious about how psychiatrists work Using compelling patient vignettes Shrink Rap explains how psychiatrists think about and address the problems they encounter from the mundane how much to. As a medical interpreter I relay what was said in one language in another so technically I only have to grok the words However it helps if I know what the speakers are thinking and why they say the things they do In many cases the patient s thoughts are simple OW Ow ow ow ow ow a little help here In acute cases the uestions make sense You have a fever ache and chills have you been in contact with anyone who has the flu The one specialty that tends to throw me off though is psychiatry uestions seem to come out of left field and I have no idea what s going on in the doctor s headLuckily the three doctors who wrote this book have my back They each have a different area of expertise hospital psychiatry forensic psychiatry and psychotherapy and their combined depth of knowledge is evident and awesome We re shown scenarios with fictitious patients explaining why the also fictitious doctors ask the uestions they do when and why certain medications should be avoided and what they hope the patient will achieve via treatment This look inside psychiatrists heads was invaluable for me I was able to think about cases I m familiar with and finally realize why a certain medication was stopped or why the doctor asked a seemingly unrelated uestion I have yet to interpret in an institutional setting but I now feel much prepared to tackle a jail or involuntary hospitalization assignment The legal system is different where I am of course but the basic tenants of treatment remain the sameIn a similar vein there is a lot of discussion about how psychiatrists are reimbursed and how this or that insurance authorizes treatment It isn t relevant to me and things have probably changed under the Affordable Care Act but it s still interestingThe writing is clear and easy to follow striking a balance between jargon and a general writing style If you have some kind of contact with mental health professionals like me or an interest in the area you ll love Shrink Rap I m not sure I would push it on friends not into medical non fiction though give them some Mary Roach first

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
