Title

Widely regarded as a standard clinical resource, this book helps practitioners think outside the mental health box and recognize when a client may need a medical evaluation. Part I provides an accessible overview of symptoms that can be observed in a standard mental status examination and may point to medical illness. Engaging case vignettes and interviewing pointers help readers hone their diagnostic skills. Part II presents concise facts--including basic medical information and physical and mental symptoms--on more than 60 diseases and syndromes. An easy-to-read chart in Part III cross-tabulates all of the disorders and symptoms for quick reference and comparison. New to This Edition *Reflects more than 15 years of advances in medical and mental health knowledge. *Updated throughout for DSM-5. *Additional medical disorders: celiac disease, traumatic brain injury, heavy-metal toxicity, and others. *Updated links to further reading on each health condition.
