Practicing Psychiatry in the Community: A Manual

Jerome Vaccaro, MD (Founding Editor of the AACP’s newsletter, “Community Psychiatrist”) and Dr. Clark co-edited this book, which was published by American Psychiatric Press, Inc. in 1996. Translations of this were subsequently published in Italy, South Korea, and, Dr. Vaccaro believes, Japan and Poland. John Talbott, MD, former APA President and former Editor of “Psychiatric Services”, wrote the following review of this book: “The editors have put together the first good review of community psychiatry in America in 20 years; it has all the top people, covers the waterfront, and is not afraid of complexity.”
