Praise for Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologists

"Handbook of Clinical Psychopharmacology for Psychologists is a remarkably thorough introductory textbook for integrating psychotropic drug prescribing into psychological practices. It covers basic concepts in physiology, neurology, and pharmacology in easily understood language. Not only is this book a requirement for any psychologist seeking to gain prescriptive authority, but it is also helpful for any mental health clinician who collaborates with prescribers of any discipline. I recommend it highly." —Daniel Carlat, MD, Editor in Chief of The Carlat Psychiatry Report

"An important resource for any psychologist who is preparing to become a prescribing psychologist or for any psychologist who wants to be informed about the practice of medical psychology." —Joseph E. Comaty, PhD, MP, coauthor of A Primer of Drug Action
