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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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.
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.
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.
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.
