Abstract:

"This volume offers a comprehensive and readable introduction to the science and practice of psychiatric genetics. The authors illuminate the complex interplay of genes and environmental factors involved in the causation and expression of frequently encountered disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, and Alzheimer disease. Outlining important recent findings, the book describes not only what scientists have learned, but also how these discoveries have been made. Clinicians, students, and researchers will gain the basic knowledge they need to evaluate reports of genetic research, understand implications for treatment, and communicate genetic information to clients and families."--Jacket.
