About this book

The fields of psychiatry and child psychiatry are encumbered by numerous and complex relational, medicolegal, and ethical dilemmas. This practical and clinically relevant book attempts to bring clarity to complex clinical presentations through the integration of psychodynamic, family systems, medicolegal, and ethical perspectives. It recognizes that the intimate and often difficult work with such complex cases requires consultation with multidimensional experts to address psychodynamic, family, ethical, and therapeutic issues. In the process, the author aims to foster the comfort and skill in dealing with these cases that is essential to the personal and professional growth of the psychiatrist. It is further anticipated that the book will assist in developing best practice standards for assessment and intervention in cases of this nature.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book was developed in response to a need by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to provide a program for clinicians who deal with ‘difficult’ patients. … This book is intended for consult liaison psychiatrists who manage medically complex patients. Interestingly enough, it also should be considered a valuable resource for nonpsychiatrists, as it reinforces the need for an integrated medical-psychiatric team.” (Alyson Myers, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
