Book News Annotation:
The format of questions followed by two- or three-paragraph responses written by psychiatrists and focusing particularly on diagnosis, make this a useful study guide for students of psychiatry as well as a handy resource for psychiatrists and primary care physicians. The book's main divisions encompass the following: clinical interviewing and diagnosis; diagnostic procedures; principle clinical disorders and problems; dementia, delirium, and related conditions; personality disorders; therapeutic approaches; disorders in childhood and adolescence; disorders associated with pregnancy and menstruation, geriatric psychiatry; consultation-liaison psychiatry; special treatment populations; and ethical and legal issues. The Jacobsons are brothers and psychiatrists: Alan at Harvard U. Medical School, James at the U. of Colorado School of Medicine.
