This new book in the Practical Guides in Psychiatry series focuses on the assessment and clinical management of the various forms of dementia and associated psychiatric conditions. In an engaging writing style with many clinical vignettes, Dr. Agronin describes the patient and caregiver interview, the diagnostic tests used in the workup, the types of dementia, the psychiatric conditions associated with dementia, and the pharmacological and behavioral treatments available. He also offers advice on social, ethical, and legal concerns and on support of caregivers. Psychiatry residents especially will find Dementia invaluable in their training.

"Key points" and quick-reference tables complement the text. Appendices include prescribing information on psychotropic drugs and patient/caregiver education handouts.
