Dilemmas and Difficulties in the Management of Psychiatric Patients Summary


Dilemmas and Difficulties in the Management of Psychiatric Patients by Edited by Keith Hawton

Dilemmas and difficulties abound in psychiatric practice because of the complexity of psychiatric illness and the difficulties involved in assessing treatment strategies in a scientific way. In this book contributors address dilemmas and difficulties that crop up frequently in psychiatric practice as well as less common but particularly controversial issues such as psycho-surgery and the divulging of confidential information. Each of the 20 chapters in the book is written by a practitioner with a special clinical and research interest in the problem posed. Particular emphasis is given to management strategies, including an up-to-date review of relevant clinical and scientific literature. With its wealth of practical clinical guidance, the book will be of interest and value to clinical psychiatrists, both experienced practitioners and trainees, clinical pyschologists, psychiatric nurses, and general practioners.
