Book Description :

This text focuses on the under-recognized and undertreated problem of addiction in later life. The widespread lack of clinical knowledge about this patient population can be traced to several sources: the systematic exclusion of older individuals from clinical trials; their reluctance to seek medical help owing to stigma and shame; the fact that additive disorders may be disguised by concurrent medical conditions; a lack of screening instruments tailored to an older population; and the low sensitivity of standard diagnostic criteria for detecting addiction in middle-aged and elderly adults who do not display the occupational and legal "red flags" seen in younger individuals. This volume provides the reader with a clear sense of the surprisingly high prevalence of alcohol and substance use disorders in older adults. For each of the major classes of addictive substances, both prescribed and illicit, this book highlights the key clinical issues that can complicate successful diagnosis. The authors describe strategies for initial engagement with the patient, including screening instruments, brief interventions which can be adapted to a primary care setting, emerging web-based and mobile technologies, and treatment strategies which are tailored to the age-appropriate needs of older adults, including older women - who have been found to be especially vulnerable to prescription drug misuse. With the aging of the baby boomers, a generation arriving in middle-age with greater exposure to alcohol and drugs than any previous cohort, the need for successful identification and effective treatment of alcohol and substance use disorders in later life has become a clinical imperative. Addiction in the Older Patient, whose editors bring more than 40 years of combined research and clinical experience in the field of addiction treatment, offers a comprehensive introduction to this underexplored and timely topic. This text synthesizes current clinical evidence to support the most effective strategies for discovering and treating addictive disorders in our older patients.

Book Description :

Today's busy trainees and practitioners can now turn to this economical new paperback-- Essentials of Clinical Psychiatry, which provides a unique synopsis of the most important material--20 of the original 40 chapters--included within the fourth edition of the classic The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry. A condensed and efficient companion to the Textbook, this book provides essential updates to the clinical material in a size amenable to reading and referencing. A remarkable team of 51 distinguished experts have created a compelling reference reflecting a biopsychosocial approach to patient treatment that is at once exciting and accessible. Here, these contributors have distilled the essence of their work into 20 skillfully crafted chapters--including three new chapters on the clinical treatment of children and adolescents--updating key clinical information related to a variety of settings (e.g., inpatient, partial hospitalization, outpatient, and rehabilitation programs). Carefully organizing their chapters around three broad areas, from normal development and assessment methods to diagnostic information and finally to treatment, these authors update and summarize • Normal child and adolescent development, the psychiatric interview, psychiatric history, and mental status examination• A broad spectrum of psychiatric disorders that affect infants, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors (e.g., delirium and dementia disorders; substance abuse; schizophrenia; mood, anxiety, somatoform, factitious, dissociative, adjustment, sexual and gender identity, personality, sleep, eating, and impulse-control disorders)• The latest treatments, including psychopharmacology and electroconvulsive therapy; psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and supportive psychotherapy; and treatment of children and adolescents Combining the efforts of junior and senior authors has further enhanced the effectiveness of this new abridged version. The resulting blend of new research insights and fresh, expanded perspectives with considerable wisdom and vast research and clinical experience enriches the diversity and quality of the material and increases its appeal to readers at all levels of educational and clinical experience. A broad, integrated knowledge of both psychology and neuroscience is the essence of psychiatric practice and the ideal basis for treatment decisions. Essentials of Clinical Psychiatry delivers core knowledge to psychiatry residents and practitioners alike and will also prove useful to physicians in other fields (e.g., family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, neurology) and interested laypersons.
