Reviews book: In the first accessible psychopharmacology text written specifically for psychotherapists. Gitlin explains when to refer patients for consultation about possible medication, how to better treat patients already on medication, and how to work collaboratively with psychopharmacologists. He reviews the criteria for selecting among treatment options and the likely course and side effects of each, and provides case histories to illustrate subtleties in diagnosis. The book also lists all medications by generic and trade names, the side effects and dosage range for each.
Reviews book: Volumes 7 and 8 of the Handbook were published in 1977. In Volume 7 methods for studying unconditioned and conditioned behavior were reviewed. Attention was given to both ethological methods and operant conditioning techniques as applied to some selected aspects of behavior. Genetic, developmental, and environmental factors influencing behavior were also discussed. In Volume 8, neurotransmitter systems, and in par ticular brain circuits, were discussed in relation to behavior and to the effects of psychoactive drugs on behavior. The coverage was not exhaus tive because of space limitations. The topics selected for review were, at the time, the focus of considerable experimental effort; they included homeostasis-motivated behaviors: sleep, locomotion, feeding, drinking, and sexual behavior. Brain dopamine systems were therefore discussed in depth, since they were already known to be centrally involved in motivated behaviors. Learning mechanisms and emotion were reviewed in the remaining chapters. In 1984 we initiated an update of behavioral pharmacology to review areas of progress within the same scope as the earlier volumes. This update continues in Volume 19. Among the contributions are several that represent important advances in analyzing behavior and the use of more sophisticated methods to define the effect of drugs on particular aspects of behavior. The chapters by Blundell on feeding and Miczek on aggres sion illustrate the sophistication of modern ethopharmacology.

Issues related to litigation, measurement of blood levels, tardive dyskinesia, and behavioral pharmacology are discussed in detail. Psychopharmacology of the Developmental Disabilities provides an excellent overview of what is known about psychoactive drugs and an awareness of the principal social and medical issues posed by these agents.
