Clinical Manual of Neuropsychiatry focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the full spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as those conditions that have significant neuropsychiatric components.
With the help of this highly practical manual, clinicians are empowered to evaluate patients and treat the neuropsychiatric aspects of a host of disorders. The manual:
- Sets forth a concise, step-by-step approach to assessing patients.
- Offers complete physiological and epidemiological information about each condition.
- Covers the general neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological considerations the clinician must take into account when attempting to understand the factors that influence presenting symptoms and behavioural changes.
- Aids the clinician in making a clinical diagnosis through the precise evaluation of a patient’s neurological and psychiatric signs and symptoms.
- Addresses the full range of available treatment options, including psychopharmacological, psychotherapeutic, and cognitive rehabilitation modalities.
- Presents an utterly up-to-date chapter on psychopharmacological treatment of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders, and includes an abundance of tables.
This meticulously referenced, thoughtfully illustrated, and elegantly structured volume deserves a place in both the beginning and seasoned clinician’s library.
