0 Reviews

This volume is the first in a series of succinct, analytical reviews of advances in the psychiatric care of medically ill patients. Supported by comprehensive, up-to-date references from psychiatric, neurologic, and medical literature, this series will continually update the busy clinician on research and practical developments in psychopharmacology, diagnostic techniques, and psychosocial therapies for medically ill patients. Subspecialty topics will cover areas in which there has been either substantial new progress or little review in the literature.

Under the guidance of an eminent editorial advisory board, the first volume in this series features critical reviews of the latest advances in psychopharmacology and diagnostic techniques. Thirty-five distinguished contributors, all well known in their specialty areas, offer substantive, practical advice on important areas of medical psychiatry.
