Descripción del producto
"Marc Feldman's advocacy and educational writing on MBP is fresh, personable and impassioned. That such a collection of information has been brought together in one successful book is a benefit and gift to anyone needing to understand why another would play sick." -- Julie Gregory, author of Sickened: The Memoir of a Munchausen by Proxy Childhood
"In this masterful and unprecedented book, Dr. Marc Feldman has captured the essence of feigned illness and the underlying motivations for assuming the sick role. The origins and impact of 'playing sick' are clearly depicted with practical advice for those affected and a sensible approach to healing." -- David G. Folks, Chair, Department of Psychiatry, University of Nebraska at Omaha
Reseña del editor
Taken from bizarre cases of real patients, Playing Sick? is the first book to chronicle the devastating impact of phony illnesses--factitious disorders and Munchausen syndrome--on patients and caregivers alike. Based on years of research and clinical practice, Playing Sick? provides the clues that can help practitioners and family members recognize these disorders, avoid invasive procedures, and sort out the motives that drive people to hurt themselves and deceive others. With insight and years of hands-on experience, Feldman shows how to get these emotionally ill patients the psychiatric help they need.

I would have appreciated futher information, not a re-packaging of the same material. Both books are interesting and informative, but I'm at a loss to understand why one would read both since they are essentially the same. I read both only because I was expecting that they would differ, and I kept hoping for/expecting additional information which was generally not the case.
Because medical people are trained to have compassion, to trust and to respect their patients, detection of factitious disorder is difficult. Feldman estimates the costs placed on the medical system by factitious disorder are in the same league with serious health problems such as MS and Parkinson's disease. He discusses possible interventions for these patients such as making the signing of releases mandatory for hospitalization, telling the patient that they have a known disorder, or simply "outing" the patient in direct confrontation. Family members and medical people who went to bat for the patient are their victims. They need to be prepared for an intense emotional reaction when such a person is first confronted.
