Abstract

The reader will be pleased to learn that in this book we have not attempted to solve the really difficult problems confronting psychiatry today. Mind—body connections, conceptual models for psychiatric practice, competing and conflicting paradigms, interdisciplinary competitions and rivalries—these and other issues all affect how psychiatrists practice. But we have discussed these thorny questions only briefly in the opening chapter with regard to their bearing on psychiatrists’ involvement in the medical assessment of their patients.
