A Psychiatrist's Approach to Dual Diagnosis.
Wurth, Peter
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v19 n4 p269-74 1994
This paper describes experiences of a psychiatrist working with adults who have intellectual disability along with challenging behaviors and/or psychiatric illness, focusing on harm minimization, relationships with staff, and collection of behavioral data. Three case histories illustrate differences between institutional and office practice and the possibility of reducing the use of antipsychotic medications. (Author/JDD)
