Overview

Psychosomatic Medicine—the newest psychiatric subspecialty formally approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education—represents a scientific and clinical discipline that exists at the interface of psychiatry and medicine. This scholarly and comprehensive new textbook represents the cutting edge in this burgeoning field and is destined to become the premier textbook to educate trainees and add to the knowledge base of clinicians.

This definitive work covers the all major topics in psychosomatic medicine, including


    General Principles in Evaluation and Management—Presents a detailed approach to psychiatric assessment and consultation, essential to comprehensive care in the medical setting; psychological and neuropsychological assessment; legal and ethical issues that arise in psychiatric care of the medically ill; and a review of psychological, emotional, and behavioral responses to illness.
    Symptoms and Disorders—Includes epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis and assessment, etiology, differential diagnosis, and treatment of more than 17 psychiatric disorders and conditions in the medically ill, as well as their effects on medical disorders.
    Specialties and Subspecialties—Encyclopedically reviews psychiatric disorders in the context of specific medical diseases, organized by specialty and subspecialty, including the subspecialties of internal medicine, surgery, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, physical medicine, and dermatology.
    Treatment—Discusses treatment and management of psychiatric disorders in the medically ill, including psychopharmacology, psychosocial treatments, electroconvulsive therapy, and palliative care.

Meticulously researched, clearly written, and designed for ease of use, this comprehensive and scholarly textbook brings together the body of knowledge and skills that defines the subspecialty of psychosomatic medicine. Presenting the work of nearly 100 contributors, most of whom are nationally and internationally recognized experts, this textbook combines the latest research with extensive coverage of psychopharmacology and psychotherapy in medically ill patients.

Clinicians who evaluate and treat medically ill patients with psychiatric disorders will turn to this highly practical textbook time and time again. It is the ideal primary resource for consultation-liaison psychiatrists and trainees, psychosomatic medicine fellows, psychiatric residents, general psychiatrists caring for patients with medical illnesses, physicians with interests in psychiatric illness in their patients, and health psychologists.
