Book Description

Feb. 17 2011 0521169259 978-0521169257 Reissue
This book is an in-depth, clinically oriented review of the somatoform disorders and related clinical manifestations (such as chronic fatigue syndrome) and how they appear in a medico-legal setting. People with somatoform disorders present a range of symptoms that typically last for years and can't be traced to a specific physical cause. Such symptoms may range from frequent headaches to gastrointestinal problems. The volume is aimed at clinicians and lawyers who deal with injury claims where these disorders impact much more frequently than generally recognized.

Product Description

Review

"Overall, due to its brevity and completeness, this text is quite interesting, and will provide clinicians with a more global understanding of those being treated for this disorder."
Doody's Review ServiceG

"The book brilliantly brings historical perspectives and up-to-date evidence together. Trimble's work is remarkably intellectual."
Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

"...this is a very well-written book. It is an excellent summary for any psychiatrist or physician interested in becoming an expert witness."
Allan Abbass MD, FRCPC, The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry

"...a refreshingly direct and candid book on a subject that frequently provokes controversy...Professor Trimble's book is welcome because of its erudition and honesty."
John Sheehan, MB, Quarterly Journal of Mental Health

"Michael Trimble's Somatoform Disorders is packed with a lot of useful information for both clinicians and lawyers dealing with personal injury claims."
Psychiatric Services

"This is not the book to pick up the night before you are to be grilled by an attorney, but it should be carefully read and digested well before then by specialists in Psychosomatic Medicine, Consultation-Liaison, and Forensic Psychiatry, as well as any health care professional testifying regarding disability or malpractice in cases with unexplained physical symptoms."
James L. Levenson, Journal of Psychosomatic Research

1.0 out of 5 stars Trimble is a junk scientist Nov. 30 2009
By Justin Reilly, esq. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Trimble includes ME (CFS) and Fibromyalgia as somatoform disorders noting that people with ME show "Abnormal Illness Behaviour" like avoiding exercise, remaining bedbound and "often adopting a wheelchair lifestyle and a destiny of dependence." There are over 4,000 articles in peer reviewed medical journals showing frank biological pathology in ME. Numerous researchers since 1986 have found retrovirus infection in ME. Prof. Nancy Klimas, one of the worlds top clinicians and bench scientists in ME and AIDS said recently in the NY Times she would rather have HIV than ME. Trimble's unscientific bias is reprehensible.
