Psychiatrist, Writer, Commentator


Psych-Lite is the shortest psych textbook you'll ever read.

Rob and I co-wrote Psych-Lite after realising that students in the various health courses finished their six to eight-week psychiatry rotations before they understood the basics of the various disorders and treatments and missed the opportunity to understand what was happening to the patients they met. We decided they needed a book they could read the night before they started their courses or at least during the first few days.
