Description

Praise for Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologists

"Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologists is a remarkably thorough introductory textbook for integrating psychotropic drug prescribing into psychological practices. It covers basic concepts in physiology, neurology, and pharmacology in easily understood language. Not only is this book a requirement for any psychologist seeking to gain prescriptive authority, but it is also helpful for any mental health clinician who collaborates with prescribers of any discipline. I recommend it highly." ―Daniel Carlat, MD, Editor in Chief of The Carlat Psychiatry Report

"An important resource for any psychologist who is preparing to become a prescribing psychologist or for any psychologist who wants to be informed about the practice of medical psychology." ―Joseph E. Comaty, PhD, MP, coauthor of A Primer of Drug Action

"Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologists is an excellent treatise written by psychologists for psychologists." ―From the Foreword by Patrick H. DeLeon, PhD, and Jack G. Wiggins, PhD, former presidents of the American Psychological Association
