Research and Markets: How to Succeed in Psychiatry: A Guide to Training and Practice

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets (

has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd’s new book “How to

Succeed in Psychiatry: A Guide to Training and Practice” to their


Aimed at recently qualified psychiatrists or those looking to qualify

soon, How to Succeed in Psychiatry is not a source of clinical

information but a survival guide to help you through the first years

practising psychiatry. This book covers the topics you won’t find in

standard textbooks. It deals with daily problems and practical solutions

for young psychiatrists. Psychiatric training is less team based than

other specialties, so there is less opportunity for learning from

colleagues than one would expect: this book helps to fill that gap.

The book opens with an overview of psychiatry training, describing the

similarities and differences among various countries. Subsequent

chapters address the opportunities for research and how to publish the

results. Psychotherapy and community psychiatry each merit their own

chapter on training.

Next, the book guides you through the transition phase into a job,

discussing opportunities in both the public and private sectors and

considering how to choose the best career for you. It reviews important

general considerations, such as ethics, professionalism, leadership and

management, how to avoid stress and burn out, and how to liaise with

other specialties. The book closes with an account of the role of

psychiatry associations and continuing professional development.
