Wide-ranging and evidence-based, Complementary and Integrative Treatments in Psychiatric Practice is a clinician's guide to nutrients, plant-based medicines, mind-body practices, neurotherapy, neurostimulation, equine therapy, attention training, visual management, and other approaches in the treatment of five major DSM-5 categories -- depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, bipolar and related disorders, trauma- and stressor-related disorders, and schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders. An international group of experts, researchers, and clinicians offers guidance on how best to tailor treatments to individual patient needs; combine and integrate treatments for optimal patient outcomes; identify high-quality products; administer appropriate doses; and deal with concerns about liability, safety, and herb-drug interactions. Its unrivaled scope, ease of reference, and clinical relevance make Complementary and Integrative Treatments in Psychiatric Practice ideal for physicians, psychiatric residents, medical students, psychologists, nurses, and others who seek updated, practical advice on how to prioritize and combine CAIM treatments. The book provides guidance on how to integrate CAIM therapies with conventional treatments. Individuals with mental disorders and their family members will also appreciate this timely and informative text.
