(American Psychiatry Press) A resource for clinicians and students, this manual is a comprehensive guide to assessment, treatment, and management of patients with psychotic depression. Rothschild provides the history, epidemiology, and possible biological causes of psychotic depression. While this condition is treatable, thousands of cases remained misdiagnosed because of a lack of interest and awareness among clinicians, the pharmaceutical industry, and the National Institute of Mental Health, argues the author. Rothschild is the Irving S. and Betty Brudnick Endowed Chair and Professor of Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in Worcester, Mass.
