Aiming to close the gap between providers that prescribe medication and those that do not, Michael J. Gitlin gives professionals a source of information regarding the use of medication as a viable treatment option for psychiatric and psychological disorders.

This comprehensive source of information about the medical aspects of modern psychiatry is the perfect step to understanding the use of prescriptions in treating psychological and psychiatric disorders for therapists who cannot or do not often prescribe psychotropic medications.

Gitlin approaches psychopharmacology by looking at a psychiatric disorder and what medications could be used in its treatment, as well as by individually outlining medications and what disorders they can aid.

Though written with clinical psychologist, social works, clinical therapists, and many other counselors in mind, The Psychotherapist’s Guide to Psychopharmacology avoids the use of technical language and gives descriptions of the disorders for which medications are prescribed, making it a great resource for both professionals and anyone interested in the topic.
Michael J. Gitlin, M.D. is an authority on psychopharmacology who has published numerous articles. He is Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Affective Disorders Program and of the General Outpatient Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital.
