Although insomnia is the second most common complaint, after pain, in the primary care setting, medical texts and reference books often fail to give full treatment to the subject. In Clinical Handbook of Insomnia, expert clinicians and researchers provide practicing primary health care providers the first clinically oriented, comprehensive textbook devoted to the evaluation and treatment of insomnia. Summarizing the latest findings published in a wide variety of medical journals, these experts concisely review the primary insomnias (those in children and adults, psychophysiological and idiopathic insomnia, and sleep state misperception), as well as those caused by medical, neurological, and psychiatric problems. They then fully discuss the latest pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatments for insomnia, illustrating each topic with detailed case studies, algorithms, charts, and graphs to better demonstrate the points presented. Also included is a simple algorithm for the differential diagnosis of insomnia. Comprehensive, easy to read, and up-to-date, Clinical Handbook of Insomnia considers the disorder in all its multiple forms, helping the practicing health care provider to identify the problem early on, to recognize its underlying cause, and to prescribe the most efficacious treatment
