READING: Praise for the Second Edition: “This is a very well-written book...My students appreciated the down-to-earth style of writing...Many of my students are deathly afraid of topics that have anything to do with biology. [They] were assured by the lack of jargon and the fact that the chapters were written in a way that they could easily understand. I look forward to the third edition!” -Nathan Thomas, LCSW San Jose State University, School of Social Work “New findings emerge daily, and new medications hit the market every year...The nature of this topic lends itself to revision at least every 2-3 years to stay current and germane to current practice standards... The case studies are a nice way to transform and integrate clinical principles with social work practice. Students have enjoyed the book as a foundational text.” -Dr. Robert Mindrup, PsyD, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Social Work This comprehensive text—noted for its facility in integrating principles into practice--prepares social work students to play a key role within an interdisciplinary health care team: that of counseling clients who are taking medications used to treat common mental health conditions. The third edition has been fully revised to include new medications and reflect changes resulting from the publication of the DSM 5. Sample treatment plans, case examples, and a full glossary of medications have been updated, and the addition of a comprehensive Instructor’s Manual further enhances the text’s value. Also included is information on prescription drug abuse, expanded discussions of psychopharmacological considerations related to gender and culture, a new section on medical marijuana, pregnant women, and new content related to suicide warnings and internet availability and electronic records. The third edition also features a discussion of potential interactions with medications used to treat chronic conditions and emphasizes professional collaboration. The text is replete with guidance on common medicine-related issues social workers encounter in practice, including identifying potentially dangerous drug interactions and adverse side effects, improving medication compliance, recognizing the warning signs of drug dependence, and understanding how psychopharmacology can work in conjunction with psychosocial interventions. The role of the social worker taking into account treatment planning is stressed. The text also addresses the particular needs of children, older adults, and pregnant women and the treatment of specific mental health conditions. New to the Third Edition: • Reflects changes related to the DSM-5, the Affordable Care Act, and a multitude of new medications • Includes a restructured chapter on special populations highlighting the needs of children and adolescents, older adults and pregnant women • Presents new sections on electronic health records, telemedicine, suicide warnings, and medical marijuana • Offers enhanced coverage of psychopharmacological considerations related to gender and culture • Updates case examples, treatment plans, and extensive medication glossary • Provides a comprehensive Instructor’s Manual with PowerPoint slides, a sample syllabus, and sample tests Key Features: • Addresses the role of medication from the perspective of social work treatment • Delivers guidance on common challenges social workers encounter in practice • Encourages and empowers clients to be active in their own treatment • Emphasizes the role of the social worker in the use and misuse of medication • Identifies potentially dangerous drug interactions and adverse side effects • Explains how psychopharmacology works in conjunction with psychosocial interventions

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.

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.

READING: Keen provides a critical appraisal of psychopharmacology, including its philosophical assumptions, its professional practice, and its practical results.

READING: Pediatric Psychopharmacology: Principles and Practice is an authoritative and comprehensive text on the use of medication in the treatment of children and adolescents with serious neuropsychiatric disorders. This benchmark volume consists of 56 chapters written by internationally recognized leaders, and is divided into four interrelated sections. The first, Biological Bases of Pediatric Psychopharmacology, reviews key principles of neurobiology and the major psychiatric illnesses of childhood from a perspective rooted in developmental psychopathology. The second, Somatic Interventions, presents the major classes of psychiatric drugs, as well as complementary and alternative somatic interventions, such as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), and naturopathic approaches. The third and longest section, Assessment and Treatment,starts with clinical assessment, diagnostic evaluation, and comprehensive treatment planning, and goes on to cover the evidence-based analysis of drug treatments for the major disorders. Special populations (such as children with comorbid mental retardation, substance abuse or medical illness) are specifically discussed, and the coordination of their treatment with non-somatic therapies is explicitly addressed. The final section, Epidemiologic, Research, and Methodological Considerations, deals with broad population-relevant topics such as regulation and policy, pharmacoepidemiology, and the critical importance of sound ethical principles for clinical investigation. The book concludes with an appendix on generic and commercial drug name equivalencies, preparations, and available dosages. This timely text is intended for child and adolescent psychiatrists, general and developmental pediatricians, family practitioners, general psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals who work with children and adolescents.
