This encyclopedia serves as an excellent reference for information on mental illness, different disciplines within psychology, and the drugs used to treat different mental disorders. Aimed at helping families understand the language of mental-health professionals and providing descriptions of the different therapies available for mental disorders, it will be helpful both to families dealing with mental illness and to anyone interested in learning more about how mental illness is diagnosed and treated. A well-written work recommended for public, academic, and research libraries.-- Kim Banks, Columbia Univ. Lib.
