Comprehensive, well-organized, and highly practical, this book is designed to provide mental health professionals and graduate students in all the behavioral sciences with a concise reference on mental disorders arising from medical conditions or substance abuse that is easy to understand and apply in day-to-day clinical practice.
With medical jargon at its absolute minimum, Understanding Mental Disorders was created especially for psychotherapists with nonmedical backgrounds who are often called upon to recognize conditions with medical etiology that masquerade as functional psychiatric disorders.
Understanding Mental Disorders is a unique handbook that will heighten the awareness of all mental health professionals and students toward organic factors in mental illness. Without having to review volumes of medical textbooks, readers will be able to more readily recognize organic conditions in the course of their work with psychiatric patients and to make appropriate - even lifesaving - medical referrals at the earliest possible moment.
