New to psych-need reading materials

  1. Hello everyone. I just was offered and accepted a job on a small behavioral unit. I found my orientation very interesting and am now trying to get my hands on reading material before I start on my own. I am hoping some of you will be able to recommend something that will go into the axis, psychiatric admissions, diagnoses, charting, legalities, etc. I start in a week and a half. Thanks in advance!

    "Inpatient Group Psychotherapy" by Irvin Yalom is not only a resource for groups, but provides insight on fundamentals of interacting with mental health patients. Very readable, this book is 20 years old but the information is still golden.
