In Clinical Neurosis there is the attempt to assemble present knowledge of psychiatric disorders conventionally termed neuroses. The purpose is to present knowledge from different perspectives and a particular effort has been made to present the knowledge of the disorders from both the psychological and biological viewpoints, then subsequently to show how both approacvhes should be combined for the maximal effectiveness of therapeutic intervention. The survey of active research has been updated and over 50 per cent of the references are to studies and books published since the first edition of Clinical Neurosis The book is intended to be of service to all clinicians who undertake the treatment of neurotic disorders. The nomenclature of disorders has been thoroughly revised and theterminology of the latest systems of classification, the ICD-10 and the DSM-III-R has been adopted and explained. There are new sections on the growing fields of clinical interest in eating disorders, including bulimia and anxiety disorders including panic disorder.
