Overview

"ParkinsonC Us disease (PD) is a chronic and progressive disease that affects as many as one million people in the United States alone. Although many patients and families are aware of the physical challenges that accompany ParkinsonC Us disease, few are prepared to deal with the common behavioral issues that impact their quality of life.

Behavior problems in PD are not always catastrophic, but they are common. It is estimated that 65-90% of PD patients experience some level of depression, anxiety, dementia, hallucinations, paranoid delusions, sleep disorders, and other behavioral disorders that affect everyone involved. Written in easy-to-read language, Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior is the only book that focuses entirely on an area that many doctors overlook, an area that often causes the most problems and can be the most treatable. The self-contained chapters will help readers understand, address, and cope with common behavioral issues, as well as provide guidance on ways to communicate with the healthcare team.

Special Features Include:

* A focus on a wide variety of behavioral conditions from sleep disorders to dementia
* Special chapters on PD medication and the side effects that can lead to behavioral problems
* Easy to read self-contained chapters so patients can read only the desired sections
* Vignettes to illustrate the problems under discussion
* Written in layman terms to help readers understand and cope with behavioral issues

Making the Connection Between Brain and Behavior: Coping with Parkinson's Disease is a wonderful resource for patients, caregivers, family members, wanting to improve their quality of life, and healthcare professionals looking for a tool to help their patients open up about the challenges they are facing."

    Worth every penny!

    This book is an invaluable read for sufferers of PD/YOPD and for their family. I have already passed this book on to another family member with PD, otherwise I would include sections that I enjoyed in this review. This book is worth every penny. Mr. Friedman brings up many interesting points that isn't found online or in other Parkinson's Disease books.
