Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Review by:
Robert A. Savitt

The fifth volume of Current Psychiatric Therapies consists of thirty-nine short contributions grouped under nine main headings. It offers a compendium of recent thinking and practice in psychotherapy. Each article serves as an introduction to an aspect of psychiatry and contains a bibliography for those who wish to pursue the subject in greater detail. It is an eclectic survey which deals with childhood, adolescence, individual, group, and family therapy, community and institutional psychiatry, rehabilitation, and transcultural psychiatry. Dr. Howard P. Rome, who heads an impressive list of contributors, opens with a philosophical discussion on psychiatry as a social institution and goes on to speak of the value of 'adjunctive' therapies in an integrated and comprehensive program of psychiatric treatment.

Because the contributors are so numerous the book has the disadvantage of being too diffuse. Its main value lies in highlighting the mainstream of current psychiatric therapy and in functioning as a bibliographical source. The cumulative index of Volumes I through V is excellent.
