A Guide for Mental Health Professionals


Volume: 61
Other Titles in:
Pharmacology (Clinical)

July 1990 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
There is increasing evidence that mental health problems are influenced by biochemical factors and that suffering from these problems can be relieved through medication - which, when paired with psychotherapy, is a vital resource that facilitates the client's ability to change. This guide provides practical information about the use of medication for mental health problems: which drugs to use when, brand and generic names, how the medication works, common dosages and side effects.
Rebecca Jankovich
