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.

With the extraordinary growth in understanding the biochemical workings of the brain, psychotherapy is experiencing its most profound transition in the 20th century: from couches to pills. This book is an essential guide to the chemical treatment of disorders such as ADD, anxiety, bipolar disorders, depression and other conditions. Highly recommended to clinical psychologists, counselors and social workers, and also to patients, current or future, being treated with pharmacological substances.From the Publisher:
This readable, jargon-free text is clear, astute and bridges the split between those physicians who prescribe medication and those therapists who do not... Dr. Gitlin's dual knowledge base and respect for both methods of intervention demonstrate comfort with the split treatment model and collegial regard for the non-medical clinician. This clinical guide is a must for the non-physician therapist.
