This book is a practical and useful resource for social work students and practitioners as they fill and expand their daily roles in psychiatric medication management. The authors provide readers with the information they need to be aware, articulate, and active with respect to client's medication-related dilemmas, but also mindful of the sociopolitical context of prescription practice in psychiatry.

Professionals and students alike will find this book to be a practical resource that helps them to be more responsive to the medication-related concerns of their mental health clients and to work more collaboratively on these issues with families and other mental health care providers. Rich in case examples and within a contemporary framework of partnership" practice, this book provides an up-to-date primer on psychopharmacology and a review of psychosocial interventions.
