Overview

This unique, ground-breaking new reference makes clinical psychiatry easily accessible to primary care physicians and related professionals who treat patients with mental problems. Co-authored by primary care physicians and psychiatrists, the book presents clinical wisdom, insights, and "trade secrets" not usually shared with primary care physicians. Readers will find comprehensive, realistic coverage of conditions actually seen by family physicians, regardless of how these problems are addressed in training or reimbursed by insurance plans. Primary Care Psychiatry also assists readers in making referrals in situations where patients are resistant, or when referral resources are unavailable.
