This practical book introduces several valuable perspectives on the treatment of individuals with neuropsychiatric illnesses. The opening chapters emphasize the symptomatic use of psychiatric modalities in delirium and dementia. These early chapters address, regardless of etiology, such common conditions as fatigue, apathy, amnesia, disturbed executive functions, prosody, and other discomforts and dysfunctions. The authors outline each pathophysiology and then guide the reader in establishing a therapeutic alliance and eliciting the relevant symptoms.
