Depression As A Systemic Illness

7May

Guest: James J. Strain, M.D.

Dr. Strain speaks about his career as a pioneer in the subspecialty of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry and his experience lecturing and teaching throughout the world.  He also discusses his innovative concepts of depression and physical disease and how they have a reciprocal connection. These ideas are elaborated in a new book that Dr. Strain edited with Dr. Blumenfield titled Depression As A Systemic Illness recently published by Oxford University Press.
