From the Publisher
Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologistsbrings together in a single volume a vast amount of informationnormally contained in a dozen or more volumes. It is well written,concise yet comprehensive, well organized, and densely packed withlists, tables, vocabulary, and references. For those of youawaiting the release this book, you will not be disappointed. It isessential reading for anyone interested in the practice of medicalpsychology and to update or review their skills of prescribingpsychotropics. For those studying for the PsychopharmacologyExamination for Psychologists (PEP) this book is pure gold.(Archives of Medical Psychology, Volume 2, Issue 2, December2011)

This book is concise, yet almost encyclopedic in scope. Theillustrations and tables are precise and are extremely helpful inamplifying the text. In fact, the tables are so valuable thathaving this book is almost worth it just for the tables. The keyterms and questions at the end of each chapter are wonderfullearning tools and assist the reader in reviewing and integratingthe essential information within each chapter.

While there are concepts within this book with which theadvanced practitioner will be familiar, they are essential fornovices in the psychopharmacology or those not yet familiar withpsychiatric medications. For example, understanding the workings ofthe cytochrome P450 enzymes system and its effects on medicationand medication interactions is essential knowledge for thepractitioner. Also, commonly used herbs and supplements, and theireffects are also found within this text.

This is the type of book that not only helps one prepare for thePsychopharmacology Examination for Psychologists but also belongson the bookshelf for all psychologists providing clinical treatmentin today’s mental health environment. Once a practitionerundertakes mastering the material in this text, the practitionercan expect to come away with a new and enhanced view of providingpsychological mental health services.
