Already a classic, the new edition of Levenson s Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine offers significant updates in this increasingly important field of Psychiatry. From general principles of clinical assessment, including legal and ethical issues, to specific concerns in understanding and managing patients with psychiatric problems associated with virtually every organ system afflicted by every type of pathogenic process across the life cycle, authoritative chapters in this book will provide state of the art information and clinical guidance. Practitioners, residents and students who need to stay current with the rapidly expanding evidence-base in all aspects of this field pertinent to the care of patients in both ambulatory and hospital settings can do no better than to have this volume close at hand. --Joel Yager, M.D., Chair, American Psychiatric Association Steering Committee on Practice Guidelines Professor of Psychiatry, University of Colorado Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, David Geffen School of Medicine
The second edition of the Textbook of Psyshosomatic Medicine: Psychiatric Care of the Medically Ill edited by James L. Levenson, M.D. provides up to date, evidence based information about the diagnosis and treatment of the common conditions seen in consultation-liaison psychiatry. Once again he has called upon a variety of national and international experts to write chapters on their particular areas of expertise. This will remain the classic reference book in this important subspecialty of psychiatry. --Daniel K. Winstead, M.D., Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Tulane University School of Medicine --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct.
The Study Guide's companion, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychosomatic Medicine: Psychiatric Care of the Medically III, Second Edition, again brings together a multinational group of distinguished contributors to address every aspect of psychiatric care in the medically ill. This book captures the diversity of the field, whose practitioners -- scholars, physicians, and clinicians of varied backgrounds -- represent a multiplicity of perspectives.
