The updated second edition of this handbook is a first-line source of essential information and practical guidelines for mental health professionals working with patients in the medical-surgical setting.

Using the conversational style and case vignettes found in all Practical Guides in Psychiatry volumes, the authors discuss the psychiatric aspects of a variety of medical-surgical disorders, such as heart and kidney disease, oncology, the burn and trauma patient, gastrointestinal disorders, endocrine and autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders, and HIV/AIDS. Coverage includes chapters on somatoform disorders, pain management, capacity determination, psychodynamic issues and psychotherapy in the consultation-liaison setting, substance abuse issues in the medical setting, and death, dying, and bereavement.

This thoroughly updated edition includes new chapters on psychiatric aspects of surgery and transplantation, women's health issues, and disaster psychiatry.
