This book is designed to give clinicians a practical guide to the  detection, assessment and treatment of sleep disorders in patients with psychiatric illness in order to better treat  both their sleep disorder and their psychiatric  disorder. In addition to providing a thorough introduction  to the major sleep disorders, it offers clear guidance on  how to assess and manage these disorders in patients with a  wide range of psychiatric  conditions. The role of psychiatric medication and special considerations to be borne in mind when treating psychiatric  patients are also addressed. Although it is aimed primarily  at psychiatrists, this will also be a useful handbook for  sleep clinics and  general practitioners who frequently have to manage  patients with both psychiatric and sleep  disorders.
