In this ninth volume in the Review of Psychiatry series, the editors have brought together the expertise of more than 50 of the most respected researchers and clinicians in the field to craft this collection of contributions on major advances in five selected topic areas. The section on treatment of refractory disorders focuses on the clinical and theoretical underpinnings of the evaluation and treatment of patients with affective disorder refractory to treatment. Highlighted are a number of variables that are associated with treatment refractoriness, including double depression and comorbid conditions such as anxiety, alcoholism, and substance abuse. The next section, recent advances in geriatric psychiatry provides an overview of some of the recent advances in the biology, clinical course, and treatment of some psychiatric disorders common in the elderly population. The section on contributions of self psychology to psychotherapy begins with an overview of basic tenets of self psychology and their relationship to other psychoanalytic theories. This section also provides a thorough discussion of the impact of the new theories on the practice of psychotherapy and the treatment of specific disorders. The section of consultation-liaison psychiatry addresses many important issues for the psychiatrist who is a consultant in a variety of medical settings. Included are updates on recent medical advances of importance to the psychiatrist's general practice. The final section on AIDS and HIV infections provides an overview of the AIDS epidemic. Emphasized are therapeutic approaches to depression, anxiety, delirium, and pain in HIV disease. Also addressed is the societal dimension. The authors discuss the critical dilemmas rasied by this illness for the clinician, medicine and society.
