Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beitman and Nair have gathered an impressive array of clinical researchers to not only assess the current neurobiological understanding of self-awareness but also address the major psychiatric disorders of self-awareness. Each of the clinical chapters includes discussions of diagnostic manifestations, neurobiology, and treatment plans, as well as presentations of case vignettes for the disorder under consideration. Self-Awareness Deficits in Psychiatric Patientsprovides clinicians with the concepts basic to a fully integrated neurobiological concept of human consciousness and the insight that will help them grasp how people with disorders understand themselves from a mind-body perspective.

Contributors: Alarik T. Arenander, Bernard D. Beitman, Richard J. Burch, Zac E. Imel, Laura A. Flashman, Amee Epler, Glen O. Gabbard, Jyotsna Nair, Robert G. Robinson, Kenneth J. Sher, James R. Slaughter, Frederick T. Travis, Claudia T. Viamontes, George I. Viamontes, Jorge A. Viamontes

Book News Annotation:

"An emerging understanding of how self-awareness influences the integrity of the human organism..." is a defining characteristic of 21st century medicine, according to Beitman, a professor of psychiatry along with Nair at the School of Medicine, University of Missouri- Columbia. Ten contributed chapters treat what is known and unresolved about the neural basis of lack of self-awareness in autistic, schizophrenic, alcoholic, and stroke patients. Illustrations show implicated areas of the brain.
