Understanding Dissociative Disorders is for all physicians looking for ways to understand the idiosyncrasies of dissociative patients, their problematic ways of responding to medication, strange laboratory results and multitude of physical and emotional symptoms.

This book offers realistic, practical answers to questions you didn’t even think to ask. Carefully organised for easy reference, it discusses what you can do and what you can’t, where and how to ask for help, and what to say to your patient. More importantly, it explains what leads patients to solutions that seem utterly unrealistic.
