The Second Edition of this highly practical volume brings a problem-based learning (PBL) approach to psychology and psychiatry for treating medical patients in primary and specialty settings. It supplies a robust framework for conceptualizing cases, complete with PBL methods for clinical reasoning and gaining critical insights, and applying knowledge learned to actual patient situations. In addition to the book’s skill-building toolkit, exercises involving detailed case examples anticipate situations readers will face when clients present with complex diagnoses and multilayered histories. This integrative method of learning and application helps readers develop therapy that is effective, culturally and ethically sound, and medically appropriate.


Included in the coverage:


  • Effects of early experience on brain and body.
  • Adaptation and coping in a medical setting.
  • Healthcare 101 and systems-based practice.
  • Basic principles of evaluation: interviewing, Mental Status Examination, differential diagnosis, and treatment planning.
  • Death, dying, and end-of-life care.
  • Plus specific chapters focusing on anxiety, personality, addictive, neurocognitive, sexual, sleep/wake, and other disorders.


Its emphasis on real-world interactions between mental and medical health systems makes the Second Edition of Problem-Based Behavioral Science and Psychiatry a go-to resource for medical students as well as psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers working in medical settings.
