Abstract

The intent of this review is to supply the reader, assumed to be a behavioral clinician, an overview of the assessment of selected physical disorders and their associated behavioral sequelae. We begin with a brief historical overview of the area to provide the reader with a basic conceptual foundation. Following the historical overview, a general assessment paradigm is presented. The individual disorders are presented next, along with specific assessment and diagnostic issues associated with each.
