Our remedies are only largely as good as the way in which we dispense them. That is the central argument of Thinking About Prescribing. In this new, thought-provoking volume, more than two dozen experts make the case for an ongoing alliance between psychopharmacotherapists, young patients, and their families. Chapters tackle issues ranging from the psychodynamics of medication use in adolescents with serious mental illness, the synergistic role of primary care providers and psychotherapists, engaging in psychoeducation with patients, to prescribing via telemedicine. Readers will pick up the foundational knowledge they need to develop a partnership with patients that is based on trust and candid communication-rather than on just the cold facts psychotropic medications. Most chapters feature key takeaways that distill the most salient points, helping readers to reference-and retain-the information more easily.
