Treating Disruptive Disorders is a practical book for busy clinicians—psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health counselors, clinical social workers, and more—as well as students, interns, or residents in the mental health professions. It distills the most important information about combined as well as solitary treatments of a variety of psychological disorders characterized by disruptive behaviors, including those where disruptive aspects are part of core symptoms (like ADHD, ODD, or conduct disorder), and those where disruptive features are commonly associated with core symptoms (like mood, personality, and cognitive/developmental disorders). In addition to an analysis of the best in evidence-based practice and research, the volume also includes brief clinical vignettes to help present the material in an easily accessible, understandable, readable, and relevant format. The chapter authors are experts in the treatment of these disorders and review a wide variety of empirically supported treatments for children, adolescents, and adults.

Outlines a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to coordinating psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatments Cognitive Behavioral Psychopharmacology takes an evidence-based approach to demonstrating the advantages of biopsychosocial integration in interventions for the major psychiatric diagnoses. It is the first and only book to translate the current evidence for cognitive behavioral, psychosocial, and pharmacologic approaches to mental health disorders into clear guidance for clinical practice. There is a burgeoning movement in mental health to acknowledge the entire person’s functioning across physical, psychological and social spheres, and to integrate medical as well as psychological and social interventions to address the entire spectrum of presenting problems. This book bridges a gap in the professional mental health literature on the subject of standalone versus combined treatment approaches. It reviews the current state of integrative care, and makes a strong case that optimal outcomes are best achieved by an awareness of how and why the cognitive-behavioral aspects of prescribed medical and psychological interventions influence treatment. Each disorder-specific chapter is authored by a prescriber and psychotherapist team who consider all the evidence around treatments and combinations, providing outcome conclusions and concise tables of recommended front-line interventions. Provides a biopsychsocial perspective that integrates the medical, psychotherapeutic, family, and community aspects of the therapeutic process Brings together and compares the current evidence for and against treatments that combine psychopharmacology and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy for major psychiatric diagnoses Outlines an evidence-based approach to determining which combination of treatments is most appropriate for each of the major psychiatric diagnoses Describes, in a way that is accessible to both prescribers and therapists, when and how cognitive behavioral therapy can be integrated into pharmacotherapy The book will appeal to a wide range of mental health professionals, including psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and addictions counselors. It also will be of interest to primary care physicians and nurse practitioners who work side by side with mental health professionals.

Neurodevelopmental Disorders in Children and Adolescents provides an innovative perspective on developmental disorders in youth, one focused on embracing and working with the "messiness" and many variables at play in child and adolescent development. The volume’s approach is aligned with the NIMH Research Domain Criteria project, which hopes to move away from categorical diagnosis toward multidimensional analysis. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of development, cluster of diagnoses, or clinical concern. The book also emphasizes humility, an awareness of diversity and difference without stigma, and support for collaborative and integrative healthcare. This is an essential volume for practitioners hoping to improve how they evaluate and treat developmental disorders in children.

Like its predecessors, this fourth edition of A Guide to Treatments That Work offers detailed chapters that review the latest research on pharmacological and psychosocial treatments that work for the full range of psychiatric and psychological disorders, written in most instances by clinical psychologists and psychiatrists who have been major contributors to that literature. Similarly, the standards by which the authors were asked to evaluate the methodological rigor of the research on treatments have also remained the same. Each chapter in A Guide to Treatments That Work follows the same general outline: a review of diagnostic cues to the disorder, a discussion of changes in the nomenclatures from DSM-IV to DSM-5, and then a systematic review of research, most of which has been reported within the last few years, that represents the evidence base for the treatments reviewed. In all, 26 of the volume's 28 chapters review the evidence base for 17 major syndromes. Featuring this coverage is a Summary of Treatments that Work, an extended matrix offering a ready reference by syndrome of the conclusions reached by the chapter authors on treatments that work reviewed in their chapters. New to this edition are two chapters at the beginning of the book. Chapter 1 details two perplexing issues raised by critics of DSM-5: the unrealized potential of neuroscience biomarkers to yield more accurate and reliable diagnoses and the lingering problem of conflicts of interest in pharmaceutical research. Chapter 2 contrasts Native American and western ways of identifying effective treatments for mental and physical disorders, concluding that "evidence-informed culture-based" interventions sometimes constitute best practices in Native communities. Two chapters detailing pharmacological treatments for pediatric bipolar disorder (Chapter 9) and pediatric depressive disorder (Chapter 12) have also been added. More than three quarters of the chapters are written by colleagues who also contributed to most or all of the previous editions. Hence, this new edition provides up-to-date information on the quality of research on treatment efficacy and effectiveness provided by individuals who know the research best.

Many factors affect treatment options for children and adolescents with mental health problems, including age, severity of symptoms, financial and time constraints, and access to qualified professionals. With the limitations of managed care plans and the shrinking pool of pediatric psychiatrists, the trend is toward pediatricians prescribing psychotropic medicines. Pharmacologically trained psychologists can offer valuable assistance to pediatricians caught in this predicament. Tackling fundamental questions of when to treat as well as when and why to refer young patients, the Pediatricians and Pharmacologically Trained Psychologists examines commonly occurring pediatric conditions requiring joint treatment; reviews theoretical models of consultation and collaboration; and spotlights professional issues typically arising from these team efforts. With pertinent clarity and detail, this volume offers in-depth discussion in these key areas: Collaborative treatment of mental health conditions, including mood, disruptive, anxiety, and eating disorders. Collaborative treatment of medical conditions, focusing on gastrointestinal disorders and diabetes. Changing clinical procedures in states that have enacted prescriptive authority for psychologists. Expanding roles for pharmacologically trained psychologists practicing in states that have not enacted prescriptive authority for psychologists. Medical psychology in the pediatric hospital. Integrative care in rural settings and on the reservation. The collaborative future: brain marker technology, training paradigms, and more. Pediatricians and Pharmacologically Trained Psychologists is a must-have reference for a broad range of researchers, professionals, and graduate students, including psychologists, pediatricians and other child mental health clinicians as well as nonphysician prescribers, such as nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists.

Two key challenges face mental health practitioners: making the correct psychiatric diagnosis and choosing the most appropriate treatment option. This book aims to help with both. Clinical Guide to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Disorders - Second Edition combines clinically-relevant information about each of theDSM-IV-TR diagnoses with clear, detailed information on treatment options, giving full clinical management advice. Once again, the editors, both leading psychiatrists, have condensed the chapters on Disorders from Tasman et al’s acclaimed two volume textbook of Psychiatry (now in its Third Edition), retaining only the content they deem particularly relevant to the clinician for ease of use. Each disorder is discussed under the headings of Diagnosis (including Assessment Issues, Comorbidity, Course, and Differential Diagnosis, giving diagnostic decision trees where relevant) and Treatment (listing all therapeutic options, giving practical advice for patient management, summarising treatment specifics with tables and treatment flowcharts). The original edition established itself as the first point of reference for any clinician or mental health practitioner needing expert advice on therapeutic options for any psychiatric disorder. This edition features an additional chapter on the psychiatric interview and assessment of mental status to increase its utility. It echoes the progress in psychiatry regarding the establishment of an evidenced-based model of taxonomy, diagnosis, etiology, and treatment. Indeed, from a psychologist's perspective, the equal consideration provided to empirically supported psychosocial treatments versus somatic treatment is a significant development in the field of psychiatry.
