abstract

  • Because we know first-hand what it is like to work in the primary care setting, we have distilled a large volume of information into a practical and focused overview of primary care psychiatry. Perfect for primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and PAs, who are routinely confronted with behavioral health disorders among patients in a primary care setting, the second edition of this unique multimedia handbook—now affiliated with the Association of Medicine and Psychiatry—sits at the intersection of primary care and psychiatry. You'll find much that is new: updated fundamentals on depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance, and eating disorders, as well as overviews on CBT, motivational therapy, and common pharmacological therapies. With contributors from the worlds of both psychiatryandprimary care, you have a perfect package on how to integrate the two in order to deliver better mental health care for your patients.
