About the Authors
  • Psychosomatic medicine or consultation-liaison psychiatry is the branch of psychiatry that focuses on the mental health issues which accompany, or develop as a result of, other medical disorders. This subdiscipline forms an important part of training in psychiatry. This book provides an ideal first exposure to the inseparable nature of physical and psychological health and illness, and a comprehensive introduction to the broad range of disorders seen on the psychiatric consult service. Organized into a series of bitesized chapters, each focusing on a typical consult question, this handbook provides a practical and portable reference which should set both strategy and tactics for the next generation of consulting psychiatrists. Essential reading for medical students, psychiatry residents and psychosomatic fellows, this manual will provide immediate, in-the-field guidance on the evaluation and management of common consultation requests.

    • Easy-to-use reference in which the user can find key information quickly
    • Each chapter is based on a typical consult question, providing immediate guidance on common consultation scenarios
    • Outlines both the work-up and treatment of most of the disorders seen by consultation psychiatrists

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is a collaborative effort by psychiatrists to present the relevant and challenging topics of psychosomatic medicine. The book delivers the information in an easy to use format and functions as an excellent guide for those who are charting the waters of consultation-liaison psychiatry....While its ideal audience is made up of those working on the forefront of psychosomatic medicine, this book would benefit clinicians in all specialties."
