Summary

Summary

Tourette's Syndrome is now recognized as a common, lifelong condition and a ``model'' disorder reflecting the interaction of genetic vulnerability and environmental factors. Along with progress in research on Tourette's and other tic disorders, new approaches to treating this neuropsychiatric disturbance are now attracting wide interest among mental health workers. This book provides the broadest, most up-to-date account of this group of disorders, their features, symptoms, etiology and diagnosis, and various psychosocial disorders with similar symptoms. It also presents a variety of environmental and pharmacological therapeutic approaches that underscore areas of disagreement in the field, as well as new genetic, neurochemical and pharmacologic knowledge. Contributors to this work are all leading researchers or clinicians.
