by Padma Catell, PhD

 

psychotherapist-book

Drugs and Clients is written for people who are studying or practicing the art of psychotherapy, particularly Marriage and Family Therapists, Clinical Social Workers, nurses, graduate students, school counselors, and psychologists, all of whom have a need to know how prescription psychoactive medications and other mind-altering drugs, both legal and illegal, affect their clients.

Dr. Catell, who is a psychologist and a therapist with an MA in biology with a specialization in pharmacology, addresses the most common pharmacological situations facing clinical therapists in a clear and objective style. The focus is on how to recognize when a medication evaluation might be needed, and how the various psychotropic substances might effect the therapeutic process. She believes that it is vital for psychotherapists

to be able to discuss with their clients, in a knowledgeable and unbiased way, the clients’ options for taking medications and the affects of any non-prescription psychoactive drugs that a client may be taking. She has been teaching psychopharmacology to graduate students for many years, and has written Drugs and Clients, not only as a guide to practicing therapists, but also as a textbook for her own classes and for other educators who are teaching this increasingly important subject.
