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.

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.
