Overview

Presenting material within a contemporary framework of "partnership" practice that is rich with case examples, this up-to-date primer on psychopharmacology and psychosocial interventions serves as a useful resource for social work students and practitioners as they expand their daily roles in psychiatric medication management. Bentley and Walsh present all the facts, myths, and relevant information about psychotropic medication in an easy-to-access manner. Content on a variety of topics, including expanded coverage of children and adolescents, helps readers become more responsive to the medication-related concerns of mental health clients and work more collaboratively on these issues with families and other mental health care providers. Data from the authors' national survey of randomly selected NASW members provides readers with the information they need to be aware, articulate, and active with respect to clients' medication-related dilemmas, but also mindful of the sociopolitical context of prescription practice in psychiatry.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Strengths: incredibly well-researched, well-written, info on children and adolescents throughout is very much appreciated. This book offers a very academic discussion with a reasonable tone that is moderate, thoughtful, and appropriate to the topic. I really cannot say how much I appreciate the balance between the ideological poles in social work that say we must either reject all pharmacotherapy/medical approaches, or else, on the other end of the spectrum, completely ally ourselves with the medical profession. This book never talks down to the reader. It offers an excellent inclusion of consumer perspectives, consumer-strengths focus, and skillfully integrates social work values into the discussion."

"The text is amazingly reader friendly and balanced in its perspectives on the role of medications in the life of clients, family members and their relationship with providers. The authors have done a superb job of infusing the third edition with updated information on psychotropic medications with special populations and data from a national survey of social workers and their changing roles in medication management."

Booknews
Drawing from research and authors' own experiences, this book offers social workers information and guidance for addressing medication- related issues with clients, family members, and other mental health care workers. Information is included on all classes of medication and specific drugs, with special consideration to the use of psychiatric medication in treating children and adolescents. This edition includes a new section on the use of herbs and vitamins, and an appendix of all currently available prescription medications. Bentley and Walsh teach at Virginia Commonwealth University.
