The book also features an important new chapter on the effects of withdrawing from psychopharmacological medications.This handbook makes it simple to: get the facts about drug interactions and side effects; find out how medications affect adults, children, and adolescents differently; learn how different cultures view medical treatment; vital information for anyone who treats clients from a variety of backgrounds; and discontinue medication safely when needed.This essential guide to psychopharmacology has been adopted as a textbook at universities nationwide and is an important resource for every therapist's library"--Provided by publisher.
