Management of Treatment-Resistant Major Psychiatric Disorders Hardback
Although there are a variety of textbooks and manuals of psychiatric disorders, few have focused on the management of treatment-resistant patients. Those that exist have largely focused on treatment-resistant depression and even these are now largely outdated. Because psychiatrists and other mental health care professionals increasingly manage patients who fail treatment from family practitioners and other non-psychiatric specialists, a single practical volumesummarizing the evidence-based medicine as well as the art of managing treatment-resistant patients is a much needed volume for practitioners, psychiatry residents and other mental health workers. Most importantly, both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions will be included, ashortcoming of many previous volumes. "Management of Treatment Resistant Major Psychiatric Disorders" contains chapters authored by leaders in the field on the management of the major treatment resistant psychiatric disorders.
