Overlapping pain and psychiatric syndromes global perspectives

Mario Incayawar (Editor), Sioui Maldonado-Bouchard (Editor), M. R. Clark (Editor)
"Over the past two decades, Mario Incayawar, the senior editor of this impressive volume assessing the current state of knowledge in the overlapping clinical domains of pain and psychiatric syndromes, has established a reputation as an innovative thinker and steady contributor to the fields of cultural psychiatry and pain medicine, with a particular focus on the indigenous Quichua population of the Andean mountain region of South America. During these years, he founded and is the director of the Runajambi Institute for the Study of Quichua Culture and Health, based in the Andean community, working closely with Lise Bouchard and Sioui Maldonado-Bouchard. Between them, they bring the perspectives of clinical medicine, psychiatry, anthropology, linguistics, neuroscience, and genetics to the elucidation of the complex interactions between chronic pain and psychiatric disorders. Each of them has contributed insightful chapters to this volume, which includes twenty-nine chapters written by international scholars on a wide range of topics relating to overlapping chronic pain and psychiatric disorders"-- Provided by publisher
