(This volume bridges the gap between current research in c...)
This volume bridges the gap between current research in cognitive science and contemporary Clinical theory and practice. The book begins with a theoretical background to the intersection between cognitive and clinical science. It then focuses on cognitive science models and theories as applied to particular clinical disorders, including anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive, dissociative and conversion, personality, Alzheimer's diseases, and readying disability. Designed for both cognitive scientists and clinicians, Cognitive Science and Clinical Disorders includes cutting-edge cognitive theory as well as clinical viewpoints.
(Impulsivity and aggression have undergone considerable re...)
Impulsivity and aggression have undergone considerable research scrutiny in recent years and will comprise a major research topic in psychiatry over the next decade. Violence is a public health issue of great concern and advances in our knowledge of the psychiatry of aggression and disorders of impulse control are therefore of tremendous importance. Specifically addressing diagnostic, epidemiologic, evolutionary, neurobiological, neuropsychological and legal issues, this timely text brings together a large array of diverse data to provide a unique, comprehensive and up-to-date account of this subject. Specific impulse control disorders, personality disorders, and related disorders such as self-mutilation, bulimia, substance abuse, and neurological trauma are discussed. Treatment strategies articularly psychopharmacology, new agents undergoing trials and psychological approaches are reviewed. No single work has yet attempted to address systematically the phenomenology, neurobiology, and treatment of impulsivity, aggression, and disorders of impulse control.
(Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of obsessi...)

(Can a worthwhile exchange be set up between the seemingly...)
Can a worthwhile exchange be set up between the seemingly opposing viewpoints of psychoanalytic therapy and cognitive science? Stein and the other contributing authors of Cognitive Science and the Unconscious say yes. In fact, it is their contention that such an interchange of theory and method - combining the theoretical clarity and empirical rigor of cognitive science with the richness and complexity of clinical work - holds the promise of enriching both disciplines. The concept of unconsciousness, as variously conceived by psychoanalysis ("The Unconscious") and cognitive science ("unconscious processing"), is the reference point of this dialogue. Written by a distinguished group of researchers and clinicians, this volume examines those aspects of the unconscious mind most relevant to the psychiatric practitioner, including unconscious processing of affective and traumatic experience, unconscious mechanisms in dissociative states and disorders, and cognitive approaches to dreaming and repression. Although cognitive psychology forms the backbone of the book, many of the chapters illuminate relevant work from the fields of artificial intelligence, linguistics, and biology.

(The phenomenon of trichotillomania, or hair pulling, has ...)
The phenomenon of trichotillomania, or hair pulling, has been observed for centuries. The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates noted hair pulling as one of the many symptoms that the physician was advised to assess as a routine matter. In our present time and culture, "pulling one's hair out" is more typically referred to in the context of depression, frustration, boredom, or other emotional turmoil. In truth, hair pulling is a highly prevalent behavior that may be associated with significant morbidity. Edited by experts in the field, Trichotillomania addresses the importance of the study of hair pulling from both a clinical and a research perspective. Documenting the clinical phenomenology, morbidity, and management of trichotillomania, it discusses the phenomenology of childhood trichotillomania, providing a comprehensive description of its symptoms and sequelae. Of particular value for the clinician are contributions on the assessment of trichotillomania and a detailed cognitive-behavioral treatment plan. The uses of medication, the place of a psychodynamic perspective, the value of behavioral interventions, and the role of hypnotherapy are also thoroughly discussed.
(Research on connectionist models is one of the most excit...)
Research on connectionist models is one of the most exciting areas in cognitive science, and neural network models of psychopathology have immediate theoretical and empirical appeal. The contributors to this study review theoretical, historical and clinical issues, including the contribution of neural network models to diagnosis, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. Models are presented for a range of disorders, including schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, dissociative phenomena, autism and Alzheimer's disease. This book will appeal to a broad audience. On the one hand, it will be read with interest by psychiatrists, psychologists and other clinicians and researchers in psychopathology. On the other, it will appeal to those working in cognitive science and artificial intelligence, and particularly those interested in neural network or connectionist models.

There have been very significant developments in our understanding of the methods for systematically reviewing literature, assessing clinical trials and optimizing decision making. The book explores these issues and applies the lessons learned to the practical management of major psychiatric conditions, addressing issues such as selecting the best first-line psychopharmacological intervention for a particular disorder, how long a particular intervention should be continued, and identifying the next-best treatment strategy should the first agent fail.
(Visibility of impulse-control disorders (ICDs) has never ...)
Visibility of impulse-control disorders (ICDs) has never been greater than it is today, both in the field of psychiatry and in popular culture. Changes in both society and technology have contributed to the importance of conceptualizing, assessing, and treating impulse-control disorders (ICDs). The ground-breaking Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders focuses on all of the different ICDs as a group. Beginning with the conceptualization and classification of ICDs, including the phenomenology, assessment, and classification of impulsivity as a core symptom domain that cuts across and drives the expression of these disorders, 25 recognized experts provide cutting-edge, concise, and practical information about intermittent explosive disorder, childhood conduct disorder and the antisocial spectrum, self-injurious behavior, sexual compulsions, binge eating, trichotillomania, kleptomania, compulsive shopping, pyromania, pathological gambling, and problematic Internet use. The remarkable Clinical Manual of Impulse-Control Disorders sheds light on the complex world of ICDs. As such, it will be welcomed not only by researchers and clinicians but also by individuals and family members coping with these disorders.

(The second edition of the Textbook of Anxiety Disorders c...)
The second edition of the Textbook of Anxiety Disorders continues to offer both clinicians and researchers a single-volume resource that covers not only advances in clinical interventions but also the latest advances in theoretical knowledge. Following a comprehensive overview of anxiety disorders, the book provides detailed coverage of seven specific DSM-IV-TR diagnoses: generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), mixed anxiety-depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Each section covers the latest thinking on symptomatology and pathogenesis, then provides evidence-based clinical recommendations for pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. This new edition features new chapters on anxious traits and temperaments, the neuropsychology of anxiety disorders, and anxiety and insomnia. Other chapters have been entirely rewritten by new authors to provide fresh insight into such topics as integrated treatment of anxiety disorders; pharmacotherapy for GAD, OCD, and panic disorder; psychotherapy for OCD and PTSD; anxiety disorders in the elderly; anxiety accompanying substance abuse; and the economic and social costs of anxiety. All chapters have been expanded and fully updated with new research findings, and each now includes a concise summary of key clinical points to help readers put those findings into practice.
(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is now recognized as one of...)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is now recognized as one of the most common psychiatric disorders, and the tenth most disabling of all medical disorders. Major advances in our understanding of its neurobiological basis and the discovery of robust treatments offer new hope for sufferers. Yet, sadly, people with OCD continue to remain under-diagnosed and inappropriately treated. Obsessive Compulsive Disorders presents a practical guide to the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of OCD. It includes chapters on the neurobiology as well as the psychology of OCD; on adults and children with the disorder; and on the pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy and integrated treatment of OCD.
(Social anxiety disorder is one of the most prevalent and ...)
Social anxiety disorder is one of the most prevalent and disabling of all psychiatric disorders. Fortunately, there have been significant advances in our understanding and treatment of this condition. Written by preeminent scientists in the field, this reference provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of current knowledge on social anxiety disorder (SAD)-providing state-of-the-art reviews and analyses of the psychopathology, pathogenesis, and management of this condition.
(Psychotropic agents have been effective for the treatment...)
Psychotropic agents have been effective for the treatment of the emotional, and cognitive symptoms of serious psychiatric disorders. At the same time, the availability of such agents raises questions about the appropriate use of what might be termed 'smart pills', 'happy pills', or 'pep pills'. This volume argues that developments in modern psychopharmacology raise a range of important philosophical questions, and may ultimately change the way we think about ourselves. It provides a framework for addressing important philosophical issues in psychiatry and psychopharmacology. The approach is a naturalistic one, drawing on theory and data from modern cognitive-affective neuroscience and attempts to address objective and subjective aspects of psychiatric disorders, to integrate our knowledge of mechanisms and meanings, and to provide a balanced view of the good and the bad of psychotropics.
(Trichotillomania, skin picking, and other body-focused re...)
Trichotillomania, skin picking, and other body-focused repetitive disorders are as common among the population as access to comprehensive clinical information is rare. Although research into habitual stereotypic movements, as they are also known, has accelerated in the last 10 years, no volume has yet presented a systematic review of clinical characteristics, diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment options. Until now. Trichotillomania, Skin Picking, and Other Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors provides clinicians, researchers, family members, and individuals who have these disorders with the cutting-edge, comprehensive resource they need to understand and address the problem. Coverage is detailed enough for the clinician, yet written in an accessible style to benefit patients and their families. Of special note are the separate sections for adults and children with these disorders, reflecting the distinct challenges of treating each group. Body-focused repetitive disorders cause a tremendous amount of distress and suffering. In addition to providing the most current, evidence-based assessment and treatment strategies, the authors emphasize the personal and social consequences patients face and make a persuasive case for more research, heightened physician awareness, and greater professional empathy in battling this often debilitating disorder.
(Despite the growing interest in the role of psychological...)
Despite the growing interest in the role of psychological trauma in the genesis of psychiatric disorders, few volumes have addressed these issues from a multidisciplinary and international perspective. Given the complexity of reslience and posttraumatic disorder, and given ongoing trauma and violence in many parts of the world, it is crucial to apply such perspectives to review existing knowledge in the field and provide directions for future research. This book has a broad scope. A key focus is PTSD, because of its clinical and health importance, its obvious link with trauma, and its interest for many clinicians and researchers. However, the book also examines resilience and a range of mental health consequences of trauma, because it has become increasingly clear that not all individuals react to trauma in the same way. It is important for mental health professionals to be aware of the broad range of potential responses to trauma, as well as of relevant evidence-based treatments.
(The result of groundbreaking research conducted by member...)
The result of groundbreaking research conducted by members of the Brain-Behaviour Initiative at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, this is the first book to address the nature of substance use and abuse in an integrated way.

The content is organized according to the DSM-V listing of psychiatric disorders and covers all major conditions including schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders and Alzheimer's disorder. These issues lie at the heart of clinical psychopharmacology, making this book invaluable to all practicing and trainee clinicians, in a mental health setting or a less specialized environment.
(Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Menta...)
Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Mental disorders, including substance use disorders, are associated with increased risk of HIV infection and affect adherence to and efficacy of antiretroviral treatments. Conversely, HIV infection can increase the risk for neuropsychiatric complications including stress, mood, and neurocognitive disorders. This book provides clinicians with a comprehensive evidenced-based and practical approach to the management of patients with HIV infection and co-morbid mental disorders. It provides up-to-date and clear overviews of current clinical issues, as well as the relevant basic science. Information and data from studies of different HIV groups (eg men who have sex with men) make the text relevant to a broad spectrum of clinicians, including those working with low socioeconomic status groups in high-income countries and those working in the developing world. The book uses the popular format of the World Psychiatric Association’s Evidence and Experience series. Review chapters summarize the evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical aspects of mental disorders in HIV, and interventions (both psychotherapy and psychopharmacology including drug-drug interactions).
(Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCRDs) are bo...)
Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders (OCRDs) are both prevalent and a source of significant impairment for patients who suffer from them, yet they remain underrecognized and underdiagnosed. Handbook on Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders provides comprehensive and cutting-edge coverage of OCRDs for clinicians and trainees in the context of the new classification framework established by the DSM-5. Chapters cover OCD, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), hoarding disorder, trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder), excoriation (skin picking) disorder, and illness anxiety disorder, among other related conditions, ensuring that readers are current on both the research on and the standard of care for these illnesses. In addition, each chapter employs a logical and consistent structure, addressing diagnostic criteria and symptomatology, epidemiology, etiology and pathophysiology, comorbidities, course and prognosis, assessment and differential diagnosis, psychosocial impairment and suicidality, and other topics such as cultural and gender-related issues. Treatment approaches and considerations are explored in-depth.
(Anxiety and related disorders are common conditions that ...)
Anxiety and related disorders are common conditions that disproportionately affect women. In this book, the epidemiology, psychobiology, diagnosis, evaluation, pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy of major anxiety and related disorders are examined with special reference to the effects of gender and sex on clinical presentation and treatment. The conditions considered include generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder. In addition, the management of anxiety and related disorders during pregnancy and lactation are discussed. Two concluding chapters specifically address anxiety disorders in women and in men, summarizing key points for clinicians and researchers. The authors are leading clinicians, including both psychiatrists and psychologists, from around the globe.
