Although there are a variety of textbooks and manuals of psychiatric disorders, few have focused on the management of treatment-resistant patients. Those that exist have largely focused on treatment-resistant depression and even these are now largely outdated. Because psychiatrists and other mental health care professionals increasingly manage patients who fail treatment from family practitioners and other non-psychiatric specialists, a single practical volume summarizing the evidence-based medicine as well as the art of managing treatment-resistant patients is a much needed volume for practitioners, psychiatry residents and other mental health workers. Most importantly, both psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions will be included, a shortcoming of many previous volumes. "Management of Treatment Resistant Major Psychiatric Disorders" contains chapters authored by leaders in the field on the management of the major treatment resistant psychiatric disorders.

About the author: 

Dr. Nemeroff's research has concentrated on the biological basis of the major neuropsychiatric disorders, including affective disorders, schizophrenia, and anxiety disorders. His clinical research is focused on the use of genetic, neuroendocrine, neuroimaging and neurochemical methods to comprehensively understand the pathophysiology of depression. In recent years he has uncovered the neurobiological mechanisms that mediate the increased risk for depression in victims of child abuse. He has also contributed to seminal findings in the burgeoning area of research concerning the relationship of depression to cardiovascular disease.
