Written primarily by Fellows of the American Neuropsychiatric Association, this handbook offers practical, explicit, evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders. Concise, clinically oriented chapters cover all psychiatric and behavioral disorders associated with brain dysfunction. Each chapter describes the syndrome and its pathophysiology and provides evidence-based recommendations for assessment and biopsychosocial treatment. Additional chapters cover forensic neuropsychiatry and rational use of brain imaging and electrophysiology.

This handy reference is ideally suited for use in the clinical setting. It is also an excellent review for the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties' certification exam in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry.
