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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Robert E. Rakel, MD (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This is a soft cover reference of psychiatry for the practicing primary care physician. There are 22 chapters in four parts: principles of practice, diagnosis, and treatment; specific neuropsychiatric disorders; neurobehavioral medicine; the information highway; and five appendixes.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a quick and useful reference for the primary care physician in the diagnosis and management of psychiatric problems. There are 44 contributors and three editors—two psychiatrists and one family physician.
Audience: Primary care physicians, primarily family physicians, and general internists are the intended audience, although there is one chapter on problems of children and adolescents. It is also of value to allied health personnel working in primary care, such as nurse practitioners and physician's assistants.
Features: There are many excellent tables, good quality illustrations, and useful algorithms. The appendixes include drug information that can be photocopied and given to patients. The appendices also include lists of self-help books, catalogues of handouts for patients, organizations dedicated to specific problems, and referral information regarding mental health organizations.
Assessment: This is a well-organized and attractive soft-cover book intended as a quick reference for the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric problems seen in primary care. The objective is accomplished using many well-designed tables, algorithms, and illustrations.
