Psychiatric Medications: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals

by

Psychiatric Medications: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cutting through the differences between physicians and therapists, this guide provides insights into the importance of psychotherapy in the world of medicine.

There is increasing evidence that mental health problems are influenced by biochemical factors and that suffering from these problems can be relieved through medication - which, when paired with psychotherapy, is a vital resource that facilitates the client's ability to change.

This guide provides practical information about the use of medication for mental health problems: which drugs to use when, brand and generic names, how the medication works, and common dosages and side effects. It also describes what is known about psychotropic drugs and how to avoid addiction to them.
