Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: The psychological impact of skin diseases has on patients is presented in a clinical fashion to aid dermatologists and other primary care givers. Understanding what type of DSM personalities may request certain types of care, how skin diseases in children affect parents and relationships with other children, how skin disease can affect intimacy and the studies looking at these psychosocial issues are addressed.
Purpose: The purpose is to educate and help dermatologists in considering the psychological aspects of skin care.
Audience: The audience is all health professionals treating individuals with skin disorders.
Features: Coping strategies developed by patients for dealing with their skin problems are important to address in order to have treatment be successful and to enhance compliance with the prescribed regimen. The brief discussion on the effects stress has on the neuroendocrine and autoimmune pathway is interesting. I would have enjoyed a longer chapter on the topic. The strength of the book is how it makes the provider aware of the complicated interplay between the psyche and disease.
Assessment: The concepts presented are worthwhile. This is an introductory companion text and could be read with Psychocutaneous Medicine by Dr. John Koo (Marcel Dekker, 2003).
From the Publisher
'This useful little book, by a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists and dermatologists gives an excellent coverage of topics ranging all the way from stigma to psychoneuroimmunology, and can be recommended to all health professionals …' Journal of Mental Health
