Item description for Understanding Dissociative Disorders: A Guide for Family Physicians and Healthcare Workers by Marlene E. Hunter...

Understanding Dissociative Disorders is an essential primer for all professionals who are looking for ways to understand the idiosyncrasies of dissociative patients -- their idiosyncratic ways of responding to medication, the inconclusive laboratory results, and a multitude of chronic physical and emotional symptoms that appear to defy diagnosis.

This volume outlines common presentations in the family physicians' practice, and gives practical suggestions for working with this challenging group of patients within a medical setting. The author offers realistic, practical answers to a multitude of questions. Carefully organized for easy reference, this book discusses what can be done and what can't be, where and how to ask for help, and what to say to the patient.
