   schema:description "The book has a practical bent, discussing, for example, when and how to refer to a psychiatrist, even describing how to explain this new perspective to a patient. The author's conversational style, as well as many figures, tables, and case illustrations, makes Understanding Biological Psychiatry a guide that is sure to be well-read and often referred to by therapists and physicians, as well as psychiatrists wanting to brush up on the biology of the mind."@en ;
   schema:description "Beginning with a tour of the brain, Dr. Hedaya explains how the brain works and how brain function relates to physical symptoms and cognitive and emotional well-being. He explains how biological psychiatrists consider the biology of the individual as an integral part of the whole picture and demonstrates a new way of conceptualizing clinical problems. Understanding Biological Psychiatry provides information in three basic areas: Chapters 1 and 2 outline basic scientific foundations and core concepts in biological psychiatry; chapters 3 and 4 review biological theories and medical mimics of the major psychiatric disorders; chapters 5 and 6 discuss medication and practical issues, including the basics of psychotropic medications and their role in the biopsychosocial approach. At the heart of this book is the author's proposal for a working alliance between therapists and psychiatrists - an important goal in today's growing managed care environment."@en ;
