Summary: Presenting material within a contemporary framework of "partnership" practice that is rich with case examples, this up-to-date primer on psychopharmacology and psychosocial interventions serves as a useful resource for social work students and practitioners as they expand their daily roles in psychiatric medication management. Bentley and Walsh present all the facts, myths, and relevant information about psychotropic medication in an easy-to-access manner. moreContent on a variety of topics, including expanded coverage of children and adolescents, helps readers become more responsive to the medication-related concerns of mental health clients and work more collaboratively on these issues with families and other mental health care providers. Data from the authors' national survey of randomly selected NASW members provides readers with the information they need to be aware, articulate, and active with respect to clients' medication-related dilemmas, but also mindful of the sociopolitical context of prescription practice in psychiatry.

New to the Edition

  • The initial chapter on social work roles now includes results from the authors' national survey of randomly selected NASW members. These results look closely at the actual frequency of a range of activities related to medication management, as well as the respondents' perceptions of appropriateness and competence.
  • The authors have expanded the use of figures in discussing neurotransmission.
  • Extended coverage of material on interprofessional relationships and physician referral addresses scholarly discussion of the topics, as well as specific "how to" considerations. Relevant data from the national survey also informs this discussion.
  • The main section on classes and types of medication reflects new discoveries of medications and new uses of medications across diagnostic categories.
  • The material on special populations reflects new research and new considerations about children and adolescents in particular.
  • New discussion of the ethical dilemmas of practicing social workers, based on the authors' survey results, has been integrated into the text.
  • All content on medication education, risk and protective factors in adherence, and medication monitoring have been updated.
  • The authors place greater emphasis on the need for social workers' critical perspective on psychiatric medications.
  • Each chapter includes new objectives, final chapter questions, and class activities.
  • The authors stress the historical, political, and ethical context of psychopharmacological practice and consider the implications of future developments for social work.
  • Using a minimum amount of jargon, the authors offer a clear presentation of psychopharmacology and connect the material to the broader context of medication management in the interdisciplinary world of mental health service delivery.
  • Case examples bring concepts to life and address real-life situations a social worker may encounter. Pedagogical features, including chapter summaries and a glossary of terms, help students to review and grasp the topics.
  • The text includes content on implications of managed care for psychopharmacology as well as coverage of the history of drug development and drug research.
  • The text contains a discussion of measurement instruments that can be used to monitor the effects of medications.
  • A full section covers the use of herbs and vitamins and how they relate to mental health treatment.
  • The appendix covers all medications and the use of tables and diagrams.
  • The authors provide coverage of psychostimulants and other drugs used to treat ADHD. less
