HIV and Psychiatry Book Review:

Mental health and HIV/AIDS are closely interlinked. Mentaldisorders, including substance-use disorders, are associated withincreased risk of HIV infection and affect adherence to andefficacy of antiretroviral treatments. Conversely, HIVinfection can increase risk for neuropsychiatric complicationsincluding stress, mood, and neurocognitive disorders. This book provides clinicians with a comprehensive evidenced-basedand practical approach to the management of patients with HIVinfection and co-morbid mental disorders. It provides up-to-dateand clear overviews of current clinical issues, as well as therelevant basic science.

Neuropsychiatric Complications of HIV Book Review:

Thanks to advances in Anti-Retrovial Drugs (ARTs), HIV is treatable and those who have the disease are often able to lead a normal life. However, as a chronic (and incurable) infectious disease, HIV positive patients are susceptible to neuropsychiatric complications. These complications reduce the quality of life for the individual and exponentially increases the cost of medical care and medications to treat both conditions. Neuropsychiatric Complications of HIV examines these neuropsychiatric complications prevalent in those who are HIV positive, providing clinical correlation, translational significance, and details guides to neurocognitive assessment, brain imaging, and related neuropharmacology. Written for clinicians, researchers, and students working with HIV and AIDS, the book begins with the biology of HIV, a complete look at available ARTs and antibodies, as well as diagnostics tools for HIV. It continues on to the epidemiology of NeuroAIDs and the manifestations of it-cognitive deficits, dementia, depression, agitation, psychosis, and cognitive slowing. Includes at-a-glance flow charts for clinical strategy Presents Review Questions to enhance the understanding of content Calls out Translational Significance in each chapter Examines ethical issues and possible solutions Provides extensive list of online resources for related subject material

Psychiatry of Pandemics Book Review:

This book focuses on how to formulate a mental health response with respect to the unique elements of pandemic outbreaks. Unlike other disaster psychiatry books that isolate aspects of an emergency, this book unifies the clinical aspects of disaster and psychosomatic psychiatry with infectious disease responses at the various levels, making it an excellent resource for tackling each stage of a crisis quickly and thoroughly. The book begins by contextualizing the issues with a historical and infectious disease overview of pandemics ranging from the Spanish flu of 1918, the HIV epidemic, Ebola, Zika, and many other outbreaks. The text acknowledges the new infectious disease challenges presented by climate changes and considers how to implement systems to prepare for these issues from an infection and social psyche perspective. The text then delves into the mental health aspects of these crises, including community and cultural responses, emotional epidemiology, and mental health concerns in the aftermath of a disaster. Finally, the text considers medical responses to situation-specific trauma, including quarantine and isolation-associated trauma, the mental health aspects of immunization and vaccination, survivor mental health, and support for healthcare personnel, thereby providing guidance for some of the most alarming trends facing the medical community. Written by experts in the field, Psychiatry of Pandemics is an excellent resource for infectious disease specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, immunologists, hospitalists, public health officials, nurses, and medical professionals who may work patients in an infectious disease outbreak.

Neuropsychology of HIV Infection Book Review:

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) commonly enters the central nervous system, disturbs brain function, and ultimately results in serious brain damage. The most dangerous manifestation of this infection of the brain is HIV-associated dementia, which includes extreme memory loss, slowness in thinking, disorientation, and social incapacity. Most persons who are HIV-infected do not develop severe dementia; however, perhaps 50% of those with AIDS and a smaller proportion of HIV-infected carriers suffer from more subtle brain disorders that can be revealed by proper neuropsychological testing. This ground-breaking volume is the first to summarize the current state of knowledge about the neurocognitive disorders associated with HIV-1 infection. With contributions from leading authorities in the field, the book fully discusses the prevalence, qualitative features, natural course, and effects of neuropsychological impairments in persons with HIV infection. Neuropsychological data are related to findings from studies of brain imaging, neuropathology, and the effects of antiretroviral treatments. This critical work will be essential for neuropsychologists, infectious disease physicians, neurologists, and all those involved in AIDS research and treatment.

Comprehensive Textbook of AIDS Psychiatry Book Review:

This textbook is comprised of sections and chapters that provide insight into the interface between the psychiatric, medical, and social dimensions of HIV and AIDS. The editors use a biopsychosocial approach to provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the psychiatric andpsychodynamic complexities involved with the prevention of transmission of HIV infection and with the care of persons with HIV and AIDS. The data presented are both from clinical experience and from evidence-based medicine. There is probably no other illness in which the connections between mind andbody are so inextricably woven.In the first section, we explore the history of AIDS psychiatry, one that is pervaded with secrecy, stigma, discrimination, fear, and death. We provide an overview of the AIDS pandemic and the tragic results of the burgeoning of new cases despite the enormous available knowledge base for theprevention of HIV transmission. We document the intimate connection of brain and HIV and the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in persons with AIDS and other manifestations of HIV infection. There is no other illness in which the importance of a thorough assessment provides the information forprevention, adherence, and excellence in care. Because of HIV brain involvement, each evaluation needs to include a complete cognitive assessment as well as a full assessment for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and psychotic disorders. Some cogent examples include cytomegalovirus retinitispresenting as visual hallucinations, cryptococcal meningitis presenting as mania, depression presenting as cognitive impairment, and cognitive impairment presenting as nonadherence to complex antiretroviral treatment.In the third decade of the AIDS pandemic, underserved populations may not have access to medical or psychiatric care. Mental illness, including drug and alcohol addictions, contribute to HIV transmission and can also serve as obstacles to care. Poverty, politics, domestic violence, and lack ofaccess to education are additional barriers to both HIV prevention and access to care in the Western Hemisphere and throughout the world. In areas where medical care and HIV care are available, persons with HIV and AIDS can have the same life expectancies as the general population and require thesame medical care as persons without HIV.This textbook provides a basic understanding of the comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions that cause distress, morbidity, and mortality in persons with HIV and AIDS while at the same time examining the public health and public policy aspects of the epidemic with a biopsychosocialapproach.

HIV Psychiatry Book Review:

This book is a practical guide in understanding how to prevent HIV transmission, to recognize risk behaviors, and to add something else to their repertoires. It aims to empower clinicians and provide a sense of security and competence with the recognition and understanding of some of the psychiatric illnesses that complicate and perpetuate the HIV pandemic that continue to persist throughout every area of the world despite the magnitude of the progress that has transformed the illness from a rapidly fatal to chronic illness that is no longer life-limiting. Missing in most of the literature on HIV is the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, contribution of psychiatric symptoms, psychiatric illness, and risk behaviors that drive the pandemic and serve as catalysts for new infections. This practical guide provides state-of-the-art understanding of not only prevention but also a way to recognize risk behaviors, psychiatric symptoms, and psychiatric illnesses that will demystify and decode the sometimes enigmatic and frustrating reasons for nonadherence with diagnostic procedures and life-saving treatments and care. All behaviors and pathology are covered as well as the resources and treatments available. The goal of this text is to refresh knowledge on the current state of psychiatric illness management among people living with HIV, to provide a concise volume on the psychiatric aspects of HIV prevention and treatment that substantially impact the overall care of the patient, and to help understand the psychiatric catalysts of the pandemic Written by experts in the field, HIV Psychiatry: A Practical Guide for Clinicians provides enduring guidance to medical and other professionals caring for complicated clinical patients as they face ongoing challenges in working with persons with HIV and AIDS.
