Topics to be covered in subsequent issues include family therapy, child psychiatty, psychosomatic medicine, consultation-liaison psychiatty, physical illness among psychiatric patients, treatment of major affective disorders, and headache. In the following paper Andrew E. Slaby, M.D., reviews the literature on provision of emergency psychiatric care. He focuses on recent developments in several areas, including diagnostics and the treatment of drug toxic and withdrawal states; reviews principles of management of acutely psychotic, self-destructive, and violent patients; and discusses staff burnout on emergency services.
