In order to maintain an up-to-date practice and provide patients with the best possible care, psychiatrists and health care professionals need access to the latest scientific research and newest advances in treatment. In the 16th volume of this vital reference series, more than 40 internationally and nationally recognized experts describe and evaluate the latest research, treatment, and diagnostic advances in the areas of cognitive therapy, repressed memories, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychopharmacology across the life span, and psychological and biological testing issues for psychiatrists.
This volume also includes an informative section devoted to the use of computers in clinical work that challenges readers to consider how computers can be incorporated into patient care as we approach the 21st century.
