Not only is this book arequirement for any psychologist seeking to gain prescriptiveauthority, but it is helpful for any mental health clinician whocollaborates with prescribers of any discipline—whetherpsychiatry, primary care medicine, or nurse practitioners. It wouldalso serve as a useful review for psychiatrists who may haveforgotten some of the basics of neurophysiology and pharmacologysince residency. I recommend it highly."
