Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Integrating Psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology: A Handbook for Clinicians is a practical guide for the growing number of mental-health practitioners searching for information on treatments that combine psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and psychosocial rehabilitation. Research shows that combined approaches are among the most effective ways to treat an increasing number of psychiatric disorders. However, though these combined treatments are becoming the everyday practice of psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental-health professionals, identifying the right treatment plan can be notoriously difficult, and clinicians are often left scrambling to answer questions about how to design and customize their treatment strategies. In Integrating Psychotherapy and Psychopharmacology, readers will find these questions fully addressed and the answers explained, and they’ll come away from the book with a toolbox full of strategies for helping their patients improve symptoms, achieve remission, and stay well using a combination of drug and psychological treatments.


The Book Practical Psychopharmacology
The Author Thomas L. Schwartz
The Publisher Routledge
Release Date2017-06-27
Genre Medical
Pages 370
ISBN 9781317449683
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Practical Psychopharmacology takes the novel approach of writing at three different levels—beginning, intermediate, and advanced—to give the practicing psychopharmacologist a tailored experience. Each chapter focuses on a specific DSM-5 disorder and outlines abbreviated treatment guidelines to help the reader understand where their knowledge base and clinical practice currently resides. At the first level, the book teaches novice prescribers practical diagnostic skills and provides a brief overview of pertinent genetic and neuroimaging findings to increase prescribing confidence. Next, it provides mid-level clinicians with intermediate techniques and guidelines for more difficult cases. The final level provides nuanced guidance for advanced practitioners or those who see the most treatment-resistant patients. This approach allows a clinician to access this book periodically throughout the care of an individual patient and to gradually progress through a series of more advanced psychopharmacological techniques for making accurate and efficient diagnoses. Readers can also visit the book’s eResource page to download a bonus chapter on eating disorders as well as case studies and multiple-choice questions for each chapter.

The Book Behavioural Models in Psychopharmacology
The Author Paul Willner
The Publisher Cambridge University Press
Release Date1991-02-21
Genre Medical
Pages 540
ISBN 052139192X
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Behavioural models in psychopharmacology are used for different purposes. The main concern of industrial psychopharmacologists is specifically to develop new and improved drugs for the treatment of mental disorders, while basic scientists use animal models to investigate the underlying nature of such conditions. The important distinction between these different perspectives is made explicit for the first time in this book. By considering such conditions as anxiety, depression, mania and schizophrenia, feeding disorders, dementia, and drug dependence, this book provides a comprehensive and critical review of the adequacy of the behavioural procedures used by psychopharmacologists to model psychiatric disorders. Graduate students and research workers in pscyhopharmacology, from both academic and industrial spheres, as well as clinicians, will find this book of considerable interest.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to improve outcomes and medication adherence for patients with schizophrenia or other psychoses – essential reading for psychiatrists and other mental health care providers. An exclusive focus on biological models of schizophrenia and on antipsychotic drugs for the treatment of schizophrenia or other psychoses is increasingly being recognized as a barrier to effective treatment. Written by an expert team of psychiatrists and psychologists with wide experience of combining drug and psychological treatments, this book provides a practically oriented and clear overview of how to use CBT techniques in mental health services that have traditionally emphasized medication management. At the same time as respecting the important role of drug treatment, it shows clinicians how to achieve better outcomes with schizophrenia and other psychosis patients using CBT techniques. The book describes key adaptations of standard CBT approaches to improve treatment outcome in schizophrenia, the core techniques that have been found to be most effective, how to integrate the CBT approach into more traditional medication management, and how to use CBT techniques with individuals who feel stigmatized by a diagnosis of mental illness or by taking antipsychotic medications. Includes key symptom and coping assessments and practical pull-out strategy cards for both patient and clinician use, including treatment planning checklist, guided exploratory questions, logical reasoning strategy, hearing voices strategy.
