Overview

This ideal handbook is a must-have for all nonmedical therapists, clients, and family members seeking to educate themselves about the essentials of psychopharmacology.
This handbook is the ideal source for therapists, social workers, clergy, and clients seeking to stay current on the essentials of psychopharmacology. The third edition of our perennial bestseller, this book discusses a wide variety of newly available medications, how they work, how they differ from the older medications, and their advantages and disadvantages. In addition to covering antipsychotic medications, antidepressant medications, mood-stabilizing medications, and antianxiety and sleeping-aid medications, this new edition also discusses a variety of miscellaneous medications, such as those appropriate for treatment of PTSD, ADHD, Alzheimer’s disease, and alcohol and substance abuse. It also helpfully includes up-to-date lists of medications by both generic and brand names, as well as by class and by cost. This thoroughly revised and updated edition is a must-have for all nonmedical therapists and clients who need to understand the latest developments in psychopharmacology.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
“[C]ompletely revised...a ‘must’ for any library catering to non-medical therapists and clients who wish to understand the latest drug options.”
New England Psychologist
“Each chapter is detailed, essentially covering everything you would need to know about specific medications in each class, their intended use, contraindications and metabolic actions. These medication-specific chapters are up-to-date and as inclusive as any I have read in similar books….a valuable resource you should have in your reference library.”
