The volume is divided into three sections: general issues (covering the history of the field, diagnostic and definitional parameters, theories, etiology, and methodology), assessment (for diagnosis, to delineate targets for intervention, and to evaluate treatment outcome), and treatment (including drug therapies, nutrition, and other interventions, particularly those that emphasize behavioral training strategies).
