Hysteria and Related Mental Disorders: An Approach to Psychological Medicine by D. Wilfred Abse

Hysteria and Related Mental Disorders: An Approach to Psychological Medicine deals with the problems of diagnosis and their bearing on management and treatment of hysteria and related hysteriform conditions.
This book is composed of 16 chapters, and starts with a description of the etiology and psychopathology of hysteria. These topics are followed by intensive discussions on the clinical manifestations and diagnosis of hysteria and related mental disorders, including neurosis, psychosis, schizophrenia, and multiple personality. Other chapters consider the nature of dissociative phenomena from a structural and dynamic point of view, as well as its significance in understanding the etiology of ego disorders. This book also looks into some aspects of language development, the conversion process, and the features of hysteria as a communicative disorder. The last chapters present several medical cases illustrating the differences between conversion hysteria and psychophysiologic autonomic disorder. These chapters also deal with the types of psychotherapy for hysteria.
This book is of great value to psychologists, neurologists, clinicians, and psychotherapists.
