Management of Treatment Resistant Major Psychiatric Disorders

Author: Charles B. Nemeroff MD, PhD
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199974146
Release Date: 2012-06-05
Genre: Medical

Although there are a variety of textbooks and manuals of psychiatric disorders, few have focused on the management of treatment-resistant patients. Those that exist have largely focused on treatment-resistant depression and even these are now largely outdated. Because psychiatrists and other mental health care professionals increasingly manage patients who fail treatment from family practitioners and other non-psychiatric specialists, a single practical volume summarizing the evidence-based medicine as well as the art of managing treatment-resistant patients is a much needed volume for practitioners, psychiatry residents and other mental health workers. Most importantly, both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions will be included, a shortcoming of many previous volumes. "Management of Treatment Resistant Major Psychiatric Disorders" contains chapters authored by leaders in the field on the management of the major treatment resistant psychiatric disorders.
