Assessing and Managing Medical Factors

  • Linda Fitzpatrick Gourash
Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


This chapter discusses medical issues related to behavior disorders of the mentally retarded child or adult. Psychopharmacology (i. e., the use of behavior-altering drugs, such as neuroleptics, stimulants, axiolytics, etc.) is not discussed here because this represents a whole area of study in itself. The present discussion is confined to those issues of medical diagnosis and treatment that have potential relationships to behavior and behavior disorders.
