Synopsis:
Nature and Nurture in Psychiatry: A Predisposition-Stress Model of Men tal Disorders by Joel Paris, M.D., is a wonderful and welcome new book that synthesizes the very latest in scientific thinking to help us un derstand the origins of psychiatric disorders. Paris writes engagingl y and with great clarity; he disentangles decades of debate about natu re versus nurture, persuasively presenting instead a flexible predispo sition-stress framework for the major categories of psychiatric illnes s. Moving from the historical context to the essentials of theory to a systematic consideration of disease categories, the book concludes w ith a lucid and elegant discussion of the implications of the model fo r clinical work and for prevention. This scholarly, thoughtful work i s internally coherent and consistent, refreshing, and enormously relev ant for all mental health professionals.
