Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This is a test only course (book not included). The book (or e-book) can be purchased from Amazon or some other source.

This CE test is based on the book "Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Therapists, 7th Ed." (2013, 369 pages), a highly readable text that has become the go-to resource for thousands of mental health clinicians seeking a reliable and easy-to-reference resource detailing the indications, contraindications, and side effects of psychopharmaceuticals. Organized by disorder and, within each disorder, by medication, this book is a vital addition to any clinician's bookshelf. An overview of neurobiology is presented which provides a foundation for the discussions of pharmacology and both adult and childhood disorders are explored. This seventh edition includes an important new chapter on withdrawing from psychopharmacological medications that will prove useful for therapists seeking to help their clients change medication or stop taking a psychopharmacological medication. An extensive appendix and sidebars throughout the text provide additional information and discussion.
