Bloom, M.D., and Kingsley Norton, M.D. Guest Editors The practice of psychiatry in the United States today is driven by the burgeoning knowledge about the biology of the brain. As beneﬁcial as this knowledge is, a primary focus on psychopharmacology in training programs can lead young practitioners to believe that helping troubled and troubling human beings is somehow more straightforward and sim- ple than it actually is in practice. Young psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners new to the ﬁeld can ﬁnd themselves overwhelmed in the face of the enormous complexity of judgment and discretion de- manded of them when they actually are confronted with an individual mired in misery, a criminal offender with a terribly traumatic history, or a family that is tearing itself apart. In our fast-paced world of the “managed care” environment, it is relatively easy to be lulled into the notion that the way psychiatry is practiced now is the way it always has been
