Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Corey Goldstein, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This small handbook covers a fairly detailed amount of information geared toward the practicing psychiatrist on pain management.
Purpose: The stated purpose of this series is to provide concise guides in an accessible and practical format for psychiatric practitioners working in a variety of settings. This volume on pain management is meant to complement the more detailed information to be found in lengthier psychiatric texts. These are worthy objectives and the book does a fine job of meeting expectations.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, and medical students. I agree, and also would add that it would be helpful for primary care physicians.
Features: The book gives a solid overview of pain management in general, its relationship to psychiatry, various pain disorders, and the management of acute and chronic pain. Common pain disorders are particularly well covered with a comprehensive list of problems that psychiatric providers will find highly useful. The chapter on psychotherapy is well written and insightful. The book can be used as a reference to get practical information quickly or it can be read as a text.
Assessment: This is a nice addition to my collection of books for the office. It offers an efficient method to learn about the discipline of pain medicine and its interplay with psychiatry, and has the benefit of being able to fit into a pocket. Other books in the field may be equally as helpful, but not as concise and practical as this book. This guide has already been helpful in my practice and I recommend it without reservation.
