Editorial Reviews

"This is a well-organized, understandable, and practical book for healthcare practitioners in primary care in addition to being a good reference for specialty physicians. In an era of increasing value placed on mental health, this book is a welcome addition to the current body of literature. In addition, its empathic approach is a valuable tool in helping clinicians understand these very common problems and issues.""5 stars"
