Overview

The eTextbook for Basic Psychopharmacology for Mental Health Professionals by Richard S. Sinacola, Timothy Peters-Strickland and Joshua D. Wyner covers medications used to treat a full range of mental health issues. Written for the non-medical helping professional, the text uses easy-to-understand practical guidance, along with numerous case studies, to illustrate key skills and diagnostic considerations in psychopharmacology practice.

The 3rd Edition has been updated to align with the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition). It covers the latest information on new medications, while presenting research on novel applications of older, well-known medications. Key features include:

  • Clinical case examples across treatment-related chapters show you how to apply the chapter material to professional situations.
  • Case vignettes demonstrate common encounters in psychopharmacology practice.
  • An appendix of all psychopharmacology agents lists the generic name, brand name, mechanism of action, typical dose and common side effects of common medications.
  • Quick-reference tables reflect the latest medications and their properties.
  • Common clinical issues, such as comorbidity, sleep disorders and chemical dependency, are discussed at length, along with related diagnostic considerations.
  • Material on herbal and holistic treatment assesses the effectiveness of these natural remedies.

Basic Psychopharmacology for Mental Health Professionals serves not only as a reference guide to psychopharmacologic medications and their applications. It also prepares you to respond to a range of clinical scenarios while meeting the unique behavioral health needs of each patient.
