Summary
  • This highly practical book shows that inexplicable, intractable, or sudden mental health problems (as well as perplexing somatic complaints) may be masking serious medical disorders - from leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke, to less prevalent conditions including head trauma, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. Helping clinicians to understand the psychological effects of a wide range of disorders, and to recognize when a medical referral is advisable, James Morrison provides a much-needed reference and diagnostic tool for anyone involved in mental health care
  • Illustrated by concise, engaging case vignettes, and arranged within the framework of a typical mental status examination, Part I provides an overview of clinical observations that are likely to convey medical information. Whether conducting an initial interview or reevaluating a client whose behavior, demeanor, or other characteristics seem to have changed, clinicians are apprised of numerous symptoms that may be caused either by physical or mental illness. Part II lists 60 physical disorders. Each clearly presented entry details vital information, including basic medical facts; age and gender variables in occurrence; physical and mental symptoms; medical evaluation process and outlook; and appropriate specialist for referral. Facilitating quick access to relevant information, Part III comprises an easy-to-read chart cross-tabulating each disorder with its specific symptoms
  • Readers can quickly compare the symptoms of different disorders, or scan all of the disorders in which a given symptom may be found. The volume concludes with an annotated list of important references in medicine, neurology, and mental health, as well as Internet resources on specific medical problems
