Overview

Designed to make the topic of psychopharmacology accessible to students in the helping professions, this concise, three-part book assists future practitioners in mastering basic concepts and applying these concepts to cases. In-depth discussions of psychopharmacology topics are structured around the three core parts of the book, including basic principles of psychopharmacology, commonly prescribed psychotropic drugs for adults, and psychotropic medications prescribed to children. To encourage comprehension of the material presented, case examples, study questions and bolded key terms appear throughout the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a book that packs most of what a non-medical therapist needs to know about psychotropic medications into a single volume. It is readable, bordering on entertaining, yet it contains a very solid chunk of technical information. In addition to covering information about medications, it repeatedly reminds the reader of the clients' intrapsychic experience and the utility of psychotherapy, as well as the cultural and societal context within which we practice. There is extensive coverage of the history of the development of psychopharmacology and strong coverage of medication issues with children and adolescents. Throughout the text there is good articulation between diagnostic categories and appropriate (and inappropriate) medication strategies. Many case studies provide excellent illustration of the value of medication in treating mental and emotional disorders, while leaving no doubt that treatment is not the equivalent of cure."
