Psychological symptoms are not always best explained psychologically! This volume is designed to help clinicians assess medical conditions which are masquerading as psychological ones. The author provides essential clues to our understanding of organic disease and shows us how to look for these clues during the clinical interview process. Common clinical pitfalls, simple assessment tests, and over 100 case studies are included. An annotated bibliography to this practical guide make this an essential resource for mental health practitioners. New to this edition: obsessive / compulsive disorders; the love delusion; postictal psychosis; an update on AIDS dementia complex; addition of atypical neuroleptics; SSRI's and newer general medications; an alternative medicine section; multiple sclerosis; ADHD; Lyme's disease; and an updated bibliography and references.
