It is easy to understand the enduring popularity of the DSM Casebooks. They bring DSM diagnostic criteria to life using real-world cases, they familiarize practitioners with different types of patients they would otherwise not encounter in their work or studies, and they help teach the principles of differential diagnosis. Beginning with the DSM-III Casebook in 1981, they have consistently proven second in popularity only to the DSM itself.

Yet the DSM Casebooks focus almost exclusively on diagnosisand not on treatment issues.

This practical companion volume to the DSM-IV-TR Casebook takes us a step further. Here, for the first time, case studies include not only diagnosis, but also in-depth discussions by world-renowned experts of state-of-the-art approaches to treatment.

Taken from the best-selling DSM-IV-TR Casebook, these 34 fascinating case studies cover a wide variety of psychiatric disorders: alcohol dependence, Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, pedophilia, schizophrenia, somatization disorder, and many others.
