Edited by two of the leading international authorities onTourette's Syndrome and tic-related, obsessive-compulsivedisorders, Tourette's Syndrome is the most up-to-date editedreference covering this neuropsychiatric disorder and relateddisorders from a variety of perspectives. Featuring contributorsfrom the world-renowned Yale Child Study Center, this volumeintroduces a groundbreaking developmental framework forunderstanding Tourette's-defined by persistent motor and vocal ticsand frequently associated with obsessions, compulsions, andattentional difficulties-and maps out the diagnosis, genetics,manifestations, and treatment.

Reflecting more than 25 years of research, this comprehensiveresource describes the major categories of disorders (TS,obsessive-compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivitydisorder, learning disabilities) as well as the strengths andadaptation of individuals with Tourette's. A broad, detaileddiscussion of pathogenesis is provided, including epidemiologicalstudies and environmental risk and protective factors. The bookalso highlights the necessary partnerships between children,families, and clinicians in the struggle to achieve wished-foroutcomes.

Enriched by the knowledge of specialists at the forefront ofgenetics, psychology, neuropsychology, pharmacology,neurochemistry, and epidemiology, among other fields, Tourette'sSyndrome gives clinicians valuable insight into the minds of andproper care for individuals battling this and related disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive book covering the developmental psychopathology and clinical care of individuals and families suffering from Tourette's syndrome. Written and edited by clinician-researchers in childhood neuropsychiatric disorders, this is a valuable contribution to the field.
Purpose: The purpose, according to the editors, is to review what has been learned so far in the study of Tourette's syndrome and to suggest many important questions that remain unanswered. The editors feel this is a work in progress. In an attempt to achieve this goal, the editors have organized a review of the work from the Yale Child Study Center as well as data from investigators throughout the world. The editors and contributors have achieved this goal.
Audience: The intended audience, although not specifically stated by the editors, is essentially any individual who works in this area or has an interest in Tourette's syndrome as well as other childhood neuropsychiatric disorders. This audience includes psychologists, graduate students in psychology, neuropsychologists, child psychiatrists, general adult psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, neurologists, neuropsychopharmacologists, neurophysiologists, and molecular biologists.
Features: The book is divided into 21 chapters, including two appendixes, a reference section, and an index. The chapters are organized into three sections. The first section focuses on the signs and symptoms of Tourette's syndrome including obsessive-compulsive behaviors, tics, neuropsychological correlates, peer acceptance and adaptation, and differential diagnosis. Section two reviews pathogenic models and their epidemiology, genetics, and environmental factors, and includes extremely interesting chapters on neural circuits and neurochemical systems. Section three, which is the most clinically useful, contains chapters on the Yale approach to assessment and treatment, psychosocial and behavioral strategies, recommendations for teachers, and pharmacotherapies. The appendixes contain the clinically useful Yale Child Study Center's symptom questionnaire and schedule for risk and protective factors. The book ends with an up-to-date reference section and helpful author and subject indexes.
Assessment: This is a valuable book in the assessment and treatment of individuals with Tourette's syndrome. Any clinician who treats patients with this illness should read this book.
