Psychotherapist'S Guide To Psychopharmacology: Second Edition Hardcover – 21 February 1997
Enhance your purchase
Lester Grinspoon, M.D. Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School Editor, Harvard Medical School Mental Health Letter Since the introduction of chlorpromazine in 1953, a biological revolution has confronted psychotherapists with a vast array of medications which can enhance their effectiveness in treating a large variety of mental disorders. The practice of psychotherapy now requires an understanding of these drugs, including their indications, mechanisms of action, side effects, and especially the complex relationship between drug treatment and psychotherapy. For that purpose Gitlin's well-written, thorough, and comprehensive book is the best I have seen -- a text that will be useful not only to therapists without medical training but also to the psychopharmacologically sophisticated.
Judith Marks Mishne, D.S.W. Professor, New York University School of Social Work This most 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 his respect for both methods of intervention are clear, as he demonstrates comfort with the split treatment model and collegial regard for the nonmedical clinician. This text is a must as a clinical guide for the nonphysician therapist.
Robert O. Pasnau, M.D. Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, Los Angeles Chief of Staff, Neuropsychiatric Institute Hospital Assistant Dean, School of Medicine It is extremely useful for those psychiatrists, like me, who as psychotherapists are becoming increasingly convinced that combined pharmacology and psychotherapy is the treatment of choice of the majority of our patients. Most of my patients want to know why and how medications work, and they are becoming increasingly knowledgeable about side effects and dependency.
