Reviews


"This excellent book offers the reader a diversity of views to help them form their own opinion about the feasibility of such partnerships . . . this text is enlightening as to the development of guidelines for the treatment and management of a controversial condition, which presents a challenge to psychiatrists and society as a whole." (British Journal of Psychiatry, October 2010)."The fact that the book tries to start to address the topic, mapping it, is already a remarkable feat. The book may well be one of the first ones addressing a topic that will have to become widely discussed very soon in order to provide a satisfactory answer to the contemporary health world demands." (Metapsychology, January 2010)

What is so important about this volume is that it is written by psychiatrists for psychiatrists, with the imprimatur of the World Psychiatric Association. (PsycCRITIQUES, April 2010)
