Description

Clinical Manual of Neuropsychiatry focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of the full spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as those conditions that have significant neuropsychiatric components. With the help of this highly practical manual, clinicians are empowered to evaluate patients and treat the neuropsychiatric aspects of a host of disorders. The manual: Sets forth a concise, step-by-step approach to assessing patients, by beginning with the indications for a neuropsychological evaluation, and progressing through the patient interview, physical examination, and measures that are useful diagnostic indicators, such as psychological testing and structural and functional neuroimaging. Offers complete physiological and epidemiological information about each condition, by providing much-needed context and helping the clinician to identify the focal neurological symptoms to look for, potential contributing factors, and the course a disease is likely to follow. Covers the general neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological considerations the clinician must take into account when attempting to understand the factors that influence presenting symptoms and behavioral changes.
