Interfaces of Psychiatry

by Vinay Kumar, Sandeep Grover

This is a singularly unique book which comprehensively explores and exquisitely illustrates the different manners in which the medical discipline of psychiatry interfaces and reciprocally interacts with other medical disciplines. Psychiatry, as a specialty, interacts with arts, philosophy, literature, poetry, ethics, mythology, law, parapsychology, culture, politics, history, sociology, anthropology, religion, spirituality, biology, sexuality, technology, education, cinema, dance, music, theater, social media, etc. Keeping these in mind, this book covers chapters addressing how these aspects influence mental health, the manifestation of mental disorders, help-seeking, management of mental disorders, and prevention of mental disorders. The book also includes chapters on the interface of psychiatry with cardiology, neurology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, dermatology, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgical specialties. These chapters provide information about psychiatric manifestations in patients with various physical illnesses and also provide information about how to manage mental morbidity in patients with various physical morbidities.
