Self-Awareness Deficits in Psychiatric Patients

Neurobiology, Assessment, and Treatment

March 2005

Bernard D. Beitman (Editor), Jyotsna Nair (Editor)


Advances in neurobiological knowledge and neuroimaging technology have contributed greatly to our investigations into the nature of self-awareness.

Beitman and Nair have gathered an impressive array of clinical researchers to not only assess the current neurobiological understanding of self-awareness but also address the major psychiatric disorders of self-awareness. Each of the clinical chapters includes discussions of diagnostic manifestations, neurobiology, and treatment plans, as well as presentations of case vignettes for the disorder under consideration. Self-Awareness Deficits in Psychiatric Patients provides clinicians with the concepts basic to a fully integrated neurobiological concept of human consciousness and the insight that will help them grasp how people with disorders understand themselves from a mind-body perspective.
