Description

This new addition to the Practical Guides in Psychiatry series is a clinically oriented pocket guide to diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia and other psychoses.

Using the conversational style and case vignettes found in all Practical Guides in Psychiatry titles, Dr. Freudenreich shows how to recognize psychotic signs and symptoms, arrive at a clinical diagnosis that explains the psychosis, and treat the disorder. Close attention is given to management of medical comorbidity, antipsychotic-induced side effects, and drug interactions. Coverage also includes prognostic considerations and forensic and social aspects of schizophrenia. Appendices contain pocket cards covering emergencies, rating scales, and wellness.
