Since the publication of its first edition, the "Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Therapists" had filled a significant gap in the professional literature available to psychologists and other mental health clinicians: a practical, accessible guide to psychoactive medications that is both comprehensive and free from the complicated language and technical rigour found in medical school texts. Thousands of therapists keep this book on their shelves to reference drug facts quickly for their clients. Tens of thousands of graduate and undergraduate students of psychology are first introduced to the medical treatment of mental health problems with the handbook.Now in its fifth edition, the book continues to be among the most important references for mental health clinicians. The book is organized by disorder and, within each disorder, by medication. Readers learn the indications, contraindication, efficacy, side effects, and success indicators for each drug. Interactions between drugs are discussed, as are the differences between using certain medications in the treatment of adults and children and adolescents. In this edition, many details have been updated to reflect the latest finds from ongoing research, including new material about the sexual side effects of antidepressants.
