PROMOCOPY

Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Psychiatry will start psychiatrists and other mental health professionals on the journey toward a more complete understanding of the most common CAM treatments in use today.

The alternative therapies discussed in this book pre-date our own conventional treatments by hundreds and even thousands of years. These therapies have been "conventional" medicine for hundred of millions of people who have used them throughout the centuries, and people continue to use them today.

One of the few texts that provides an academic and practical review of complementary and alternative medicine, the book is written from the perspective of clinicians who practice in both traditional and alternative medicine. The book covers the major areas in CAM, including herbal medicine and nutrients, acupuncture, meditative therapies, and yoga. It provides the most important and up-to-date scientific data along with controversies that exist in the field. With all of the chapters extensively referenced, the book will serve as a tremendous resource for those interested in exploring these areas in greater depth.

As evidenced by the statistics, patients today are taking increasingly active roles in managing their health care. They are using CAM therapies in the medical setting along with or in place of conventional treatment. They are using them for promoting wellness; for chronic conditions which they feel do not respond well to conventional approaches; and for more serious illnesses, as evidenced by the large number of inquiries being sent to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Psychiatry contains a thorough review of problems that may be encountered by the physicians treating these patients, and it also serves as a guide in advising patients who are seeking out CAM therapies.

This book will appeal to a wide audience of professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nonpsychiatric physicians, and residents by providing a guide for treatment with nutrients and botanical preparations and the foundation for the use of meditation, acupuncture and yoga along with traditional psychiatric treatment.

TOPTHREEREVIEWS

"In summary, Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Psychiatry is a fine overview of many common healing practices outside of traditional Western medicine. It presents clear, balanced, and concise descriptions and analyses of complementary and alternative healing disciplines that are often misunderstood or ignored by Western medical practitioners. This is a book to add to your medical library."�John J. Miller, M.D., Psychiatric Services, May 2002
"The editor has taken on the considerable challenge of distilling fact from the variety of myths and wives� tales that exist about non-allopathic, non-Western medicine. This is an excellent starting point for practitioners who are curious about CAM to begin learning more, as well as for practitioners who eschew all that is not �scientific� to begin letting go of their prejudices."�Doody�s Health Science Journal
"This encyclopedic display of treatment strategies stimulates therapists to sharpen their thinking and respect the esthetic factors in therapy. It helps the professional discern the many subtle differences in the over-lapping realms of disease and illness behavior, providing much needed clarity from experts who are equally familiar with clinical issues and research findings."�Herbert Spiegel, M.D., Special Lecturer in Psychiatry, College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University, New York, New York
