Overview

Finally, the companion volume that takes the best-selling DSM-IV-TR® Casebook to the next level -- Treatment Companion to the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook.

One of the main purposes of psychiatric diagnosis is to guide treatment selection. Although the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook discussions often briefly mention treatment and follow-up, the focus is almost exclusively on diagnosis. This Treatment Companion takes the next step: for 34 cases (all but three from the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook), world-renowned experts discuss their approach to treatment for a case in their specialty area -- both how they would manage the specific case and the general principles of treatment for that disorder.

Treatment Companion to the DSM-IV-TR® Casebook is an indispensable companion designed to help students, residents, and clinicians conceptualize how DSM-IV-TR can be used in everyday practice and will be invaluable in helping mental health professionals develop a deeper comprehension of all diagnostic categories and their treatments.

Treatments include:Antabuse (disulfiram) Cholinesterase inhibitors Electroconvulsive therapy Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitorsStimulants Behavior exposure Behavior therapy Classroom behavior modification Cognitive enhancement therapy Cognitive-behavioral analysis system of psychotherapy Cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention therapy Cognitive-behavioral therapy Contingency management Couple therapy Dialectical behavior therapy Family psychoeducation Family-focused therapy Interpersonal psychotherapy Interpersonal social rhythm therapy Motivational interviewing Personal therapy Psychodynamically based partial hospitalization Relaxation exercises Self-help groups Social skills training Supportive psychotherapy Transference-focused psychotherapy
