9781462521777: When Psychological Problems Mask Medical Disorders, Second Edition: A Guide for Psychotherapists

"Although most therapists are not medical specialists, we do not treat disembodied persons. Morrison alerts us to the most common mental symptoms that might be due to physical disorders, and heightens our diagnostic acumen. His efficient presentation, using both narrative and tables, can alert us to problems we might not have asked about and make treatment more comprehensive and effective. This updated second edition--written in the intelligent, experienced, and modest voice we have come to expect from Morrison--is a foundational resource for all therapists."--Edward L. Zuckerman, PhD, author of Clinician's Thesaurus

Reseña del editor:

Widely regarded as a standard clinical resource, this book helps practitioners think outside the mental health box and recognize when a client may urgently need a medical evaluation. Part I provides an accessible overview of symptoms that can be observed in a standard mental status examination and may point to medical illness. Engaging case vignettes and interviewing pointers help readers hone their diagnostic skills. Part II presents concise facts—including basic medical information and physical and mental symptoms—on more than 60 diseases and syndromes. An easy-to-read chart in Part III cross-tabulates all of the disorders and symptoms for quick reference and comparison.
