The manipulative patient.
"Manipulative" is a popular but often misused description of behavior seen in some patients who come to psychiatric attention. The authors suggest a definition of "manipulation" which can impart helpful information about symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. They survey the differential diagnosis of manipulative behavior and consider specific treatment strategies.
