In the first accessible psychopharmacology text written specifically for psychotherapists. Gitlin explains when to refer patients for consultation about possible medication, how to better treat patients already on medication, and how to work collaboratively with psychopharmacologists.

The book also lists all medications by generic and trade names, the side effects and dosage range for each.
