The ability to carry out assessments of mental and behavioural state is a useful and required skill for those who work within the healthcare industry, as well as in other professions where there is a routine requirement to work with vulnerable members of the public; this includes nurses and therapists of all specialties and backgrounds, midwives, care assistants, doctors, social workers, school teachers and emergency services, including paramedics and police officers (among numerous other professional groups). This book attempts to break down each aspect of the assessment using psychiatric terminology, definitions and examples in order to provide the reader with a comprehensive guide in how to carry out mental and behavioural state examinations (MBSEs) which is both detailed and concise. It is an essential handbook for those novices and more experienced clinicians alike, who wish to have a concise directory of some of the basic and core theoretical principles which underpin the process of non-medical psychiatric assessment in the 21st century.

"This guide to psychiatric assessment has arrived in good time. Every few decades the field of mental state examination needs a new view, a re-assessment of past wisdom and a consideration of emergent cultural beliefs/behaviours, with an eye to identifying new phenomena. Whittard's chapter on 'identity' could not have been written by earlier authorities. This is a scholarly work, well referenced and rounded. It will be well received by people who want to look behind the fMRI and find the individual."; Prof. Saxby Pridmore (Professor of Psychiatry, University of Tasmania, Australia. Author of 'The Psychiatric Interview. A Guide to History Taking and the Mental State Examination'). "This book will provide you with some contemporary approaches and theories to assist you in undertaking a mental health assessment...It is written in a non-jargon, straightforward approach and reflects current thinking on adult mental health assessment. I believe its format and content will be a valuable source of information as well as an interesting read, to prepare and update your assessment skills."; David Robson MA Ed RCNT RMN RGN RNC PGDip PGCE (Senior Lecturer of Mental Health Nursing, United Kingdom).
