Description - Psychological Factors Affecting Medical Conditions by Alan Stoudemire
Because of increased sophistication in research, methodology and techniques, it is now possible to more closely examine the interrelationships between the mind and body. Written as part of the process of assembling DSM-IV, "Psychological Factors Affecting Medical Conditions" presents the latest information on one of the fastest growing and changing areas in psychiatric medicine. Organized by disease and organ system, this book carefully examines evidence suggesting that psychiatric disorders may complicate medical illness; that personality may influence the onset and course of illness; and that psychosocial treatments may influence medical as well as psychiatric outcome.
