Editorial Reviews

Review

Pharmacotherapy for Psychologists provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the prescriptive authority movement for psychologists, which aims to dramatically improve public health. This volume could not be more timely given the urgent need for comprehensive mental health services in the United States. It belongs on every practitioner's bookshelf! --Ronald F. Levant, EdD, ABPP, Coeditor, Prescriptive Authority for Psychologists: A History and Guide; 2005 President, American Psychological Association; and Professor of Psychology, The University of Akron, Akron, OH

McGrath and Moore have done the field a great service by providing a current overview of psychologists and pharmacotherapy. This book provides all psychologists with a background and nuts-and-bolts information about prescribing. It is a valuable resource for all psychologists who provide health services. --James H. Bray, PhD, 2009 President, American Psychological Association; and Associate Professor, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX

Pharmacotherapy for Psychologists is not only and expert review of the fundamentals for psychopharmacology theory, research, and clinical practice but also an invaluable resource for references on the topic. Contributions outline the critical need in our current health care environment for practitioners other than physicians to prescribe and discuss the components that would be required for safe and effective practice. I strongly recommend this book to mental health care experts and psychologists interested in supporting the prescribers with whom they collaborate, as well as psychologists considering practice or currently practicing with prescriptive privileges. --Sharon Morgillo Freeman, PhD, PMHCNS-BC, CEO, Center for Brief Therapy, PC; and Associate Professor, Indiana/Purdue University, Fort Wayne

Format: Hardcover
Drs. McGrath and Moore did a beautiful job editing this valuable volume, which describes the development of the prescriptive authority movement for psychologists, current issues, and future directions. Most importantly, this seminal work highlights the unique position of prescribing psychologists, and it does so without losing sight of the roots of psychology as a science of the mind and behavior. For example, a whole chapter is devoted to evaluating drug research and questions one need to ask about any drug trial. This book goes beyond simply making an exposé on the prescription privileges for psychologists movement: It demonstrates it is a good idea.
