In the last 20 years much work has been done on the influence of brain biochemistry on mood and behaviour and on pharmacological approaches to treating mental and emotional disorders. Partly as a result of this fact, a large proportion of patients who consult psychotherapists are already on medication of some sort. This book presents an overview of psychopharmacology for psychotherapists. It is designed to help them to treat patients in a way that takes into account the effects of the medication, and to recognize when some kind of pharmacological assistance might be useful in treating a disorder.

Stanley R. Grahame, Ph.D. Clinical Director, Fifth Avenue Center for Counseling and Psychotherapy Director of Training, Greenwich Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies A concise, comprehensive review of the field of psychopharmacology which succeeds in communicating a mass of relevant data in an easily understandable text without talking down to the nonmedical psychotherapist. It is a triumph in communication of what every therapist should know about...patients who are receiving medication, who should be receiving medication, and who should not be receiving medication. The best book of its kind to date.About the Author:
