This book presents simulated patient cases in psychiatry and behavioral science, providing a real-world context for students and graduates in these areas. Topics are introduced through detailed case vignettes using a model of problem-based learning called progressive disclosure. Sample diagrams known as mechanistic case diagrams illustrate the neurobiological mechanisms underlying behavioral symptoms and show how behavioral and psychosocial factors impact on patient care.
