Reducing Benzodiazepine Consumption

by

Reducing Benzodiazepine Consumption Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spurred by reports in 1980 detailing the ineffectiveness of long-term treatment with benzodiazepines, the authors of this volume began a study to investigate the reasons behind the addiction, quickly adopting a psychological approach to treatment. In testing the efficacy of anxiety management techniques as an alternative to benzodiazepine use, Drs. Cormack, Owen and Dewey strongly emphasize the importance of the working relationship between the general practitioner and the psychologist. Reducing Benzodiazepine Consumption offers management solutions for the clinician in treating patients suffering from addiction to these drugs.

Book News Annotation:

A typescript report of studies in Great Britain in the early 1980's, showing how general practitioners can use interview techniques developed in psychology to reduce their patient's dependence on therapeutic doses of benzodiazepines, and sometimes to avoid prescribing the drugs at all. No index.
