Description:

Principles of Psychopharmacology for Mental Health Professionals addresses the current "split" model of mental health that combines the care of a pysician who delivers pharmacotherapy with the care of a mental health professional. This book is intended to familiarize mental health professionals with the drugs used to treat mental illness so they can recognize side effects of treatment and provide better care for their patients.
