Patient handouts are a great tool for clinicians, improving a patient’s commitment to a treatment plan as well as providing information for future reference.
A new edition of a popular patient handout title is available for psychiatric conditions – Understanding Mental Disorders: A Patient and Family Resource.
Three more sections have been added to this title, including Obsessive-Compulsive, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
These new sections (as well as the existing ones) are available through Himmelfarb Library’s institutional subscription.
The content of these chapters is taken from APA’s Understanding Mental Disorders: Your Guide to DSM-5®.
Existing chapters that are included in this resource are:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Trauma and Stress (PTSD)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating
Soon to be included are Anxiety and Addiction.
This resource is key for practicing medical professionals and those interested in key psychiatric conditions and patient education. Each handout provides an easy-to-understand yet comprehensive guide to each condition.
