When Psychological Problems Mask Medical Disorders PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

When Psychological Problems Mask Medical Disorders free pdf Every Psychotherapist knows that clients' medical problems forms of emotional distress. But what even seasoned practitioners may not know is that some physical ailments can directly cause psychological symptoms, at times even before an individual feels ill. This highly practical book shows that inexplicable, intractable, or sudden mental health problems (as well as perplexing somatic complaints) may be masking serious medical disorders, and helps clinicians recognize when a medical referral is advisable. Part I provides an overview of clinical observations that are likely to convey medical information. Part II presents vital information about 60 physical disorders - from leading causes of death such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke, to less prevalent conditions including head trauma, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. In part III, an easy-to-read chart cross-tabulates each disorder with its specific symptoms.
