Psychiatric education for the medical student addresses itself to students' and potential non-psychiatric physicians' needs in identifying and addressing the biopsychosocial aspects of patient care. The education is best based on the clinical method, using the extended interview to identify the relationship of environmental and social circumstances to the anlage, onset and reaction to illness in the patient. Within this pattern, genetic, epigenetic developmental patterns, earlier illness, behavioral and personality patterns are identified.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: I investigate accessibility of emergency contraception pills at hospital emergency departments and survey staff at Catholic and non-Catholic hospitals across the United States. More specifically, I sought to report the likelihood that a woman calling a hospital and seeking emergency contraception could access the medication; (2) if emergency contraception is not provided, whether hospital staff would provide a referral to another facility; and (3) the outcome of the referral process.

Immediate support is needed by parents when a limb deficient child has been delivered, a time when parents' fears and problems are greatest. This support involves special skills not readily available in the community. Thus it is important that these children and their parents are referred to Specialist Clinics by their local doctor immediately after birth. Experienced therapists and medical social workers attached to these clinics are not normally available to obstetric specialists and general practitioners.

A series of five individuals who were arrested for crimes related to their erotomanic delusion are presented. The psychiatric findings from this sample have potential social policy implication.

The two most fundamental aspects of sexual relationships, passion and intimacy, are complex concepts, with at least partly paradoxical contents. Intimacy, for example, stands for unity and security, but also for shifting boundaries and exposure. Passion in its turn, stands for enthusiasm and energy, but also for surrender and dependency. It is this 'two sides of the coin' phenomenon that makes sexual relationships as interesting as they are dangerous.

A total of 170 subjects were randomized at hospital discharge into three treatment groups: treatment as usual (TAU), abandonment psychotherapy delivered by certified psychotherapists, and abandonment psychotherapy delivered by nurses.
