This new volume in the Handbook of Clinical Neurology presents a comprehensive review of the fundamental science and clinical treatment of psychiatric disorders. Advances in neuroscience have allowed for dramatic advances in the understanding of psychiatric disorders and treatment. Brain disorders, such as depression and schizophrenia, are the leading cause of disability worldwide. It is estimated that over 25% of the adult population in North America are diagnosed yearly with at least one mental disorder and similar results hold for Europe. Now that neurology and psychiatry agree that all mental disorders are in fact, "brain diseases," this volume provides a foundational introduction to the science defining these disorders and details best practices for psychiatric treatment. Provides a comprehensive review of the scientific foundations of psychiatric disorders and psychiatric treatment Includes detailed results from genetics, molecular biology, brain imaging, and neuropathological, immunological, epidemiological, metabolic, therapeutic and historical aspects of the major psychiatric disorders A "must have" reference and resource for neuroscientists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and clinical psychologists as well as all research scientists investigating disorders of the brain

Troublesome Disguises examines psychiatric conditions which are not necessarily uncommon, rare or exotic but are challenging for the clinician who may struggle to reach a diagnosis and to set up management strategies. However, with familiarity, these conditions can and should be recognised. This new edition is an exercise in consciousness-raising as well as a warning to beware of diagnostic systems which, despite their many virtues, may become too influential and may perpetuate errors which are to the detriment of patients. For the clinician struggling to understand and treat patients who fail to fit the usual diagnostic categories, Troublesome Disguises provides wise instruction in the virtue of entertaining doubts, as well as practical advice for the assessment and management of atypical cases.

Geriatric Forensic Psychiatry: Principles and Practice is one of the first texts to provide a comprehensive review of important topics in the intersection of geriatric psychiatry, medicine, clinical neuroscience, forensic psychiatry, and law. It will speak to a broad audience among varied fields, including clinical and forensic psychiatry and mental health professionals, geriatricians and internists, attorneys and courts, regulators, and other professionals working with the older population. Topics addressed in this text, applied to the geriatric population, include clinical forensic evaluation, regulations and laws, civil commitment, different forms of capacity, guardianship, patient rights, medical-legal issues related to treatment, long term care and telemedicine, risk management, patient safety and error reduction, elder driving, sociopathy and aggression, offenders and the adjudication process, criminal evaluations, corrections, ethics, culture, cognitive impairment, substance abuse, trauma, older professionals, high risk behavior, and forensic mental health training and research. Understanding the relationship between clinical issues, laws and regulations, and managing risk and improving safety, will help to serve the growing older population.

The explosive growth in the neurosciences—growth that prompted the 2002 publication of the timely fourth edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences—continues unabated. To make this vital information more accessible to residents and practitioners alike, the editors have created a unique Essentialsvolume based on that acclaimed textbook. The Essentialsis approximately half the 1,400 pages of the complete Textbook'sfourth edition. As such, it functions as a subspecialty reference that details assessment techniques and the full range of treatments available for patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. Like the tremendously successful fourth edition, this abridged version stands out because of its impressive clinical utility and practicality and because of the singular expertise of its preeminent chapter authors. With 20 chapters written by 46 of today's leading clinicians and researchers in neuropsychiatry, this concise reference focuses on the key principles of diagnosis and treatment of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. Like its parent textbook, it includes • An extensively revised and expanded chapter on the neuropsychiatric aspects of delirium• An ambitious (and new to the fourth edition of the Textbook) section about the clinical relevance of drug-induced delirium• A detailed, in-depth index This volume begins with assessment(bedside neuropsychiatry, evaluation, clinical and functional imaging), and continues through symptomatologies(delirium, aphasia, memory and amnesia), disorders(traumatic brain injury; seizure, sleep, and cerebrovascular disorders; brain tumors; ethanol and other chemical dependencies; Alzheimer's disease and other dementing illnesses; schizophrenia; mood and affective disorders; anxiety disorders; and disorders of childhood and adolescence), and treatments(psychopharmacologic, cognitive, and behavioral). Remarkably relevant and practical, this Essentialsvolume in clinical neurosciences joins an elite group of textbooks that comprise the core curricula of psychiatry and neurology residencies. It will also prove to be an invaluable resource for psychiatry and neurology residents preparing to take the daunting ABPN certification examination.
