Most psychiatrists now agree that combining pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy results in the most effective treatment for the majority of mental illnesses. Because treatment decisions are rarely simple, the clinician must choose from an array of modalities, which presents the challenge of finding the best combination of treatments.
Intended for both practitioners and psychiatric residents, this book presents the most current research and clinical implications in the use of medication and psychotherapy. It covers four core areas: the ideology and process of combining medication with psychotherapy, clinical implications of research into specific disorders, other diagnostic considerations, and the clinical relationship between mind and brain.
