About the Authors
  • This greatly expanded third edition provides a comprehensive overview of clinical psychopharmacology, incorporating the major advances in the field since the previous edition's publication. Renowned experts from psychiatry, pharmacy, and nursing have integrated basic science, psychopharmacology, and clinical practice throughout the book in order to provide a thorough basis for prescribing. It covers all key psychiatric drugs and disorders and includes the latest data on efficacy, safety and tolerability. Adopting a pragmatic approach to drug nomenclature, both Neuroscience-based Nomenclature (NbN) and older generic terminology are included in the text reflecting that clinicians are likely to use both systems. Many chapters refer to current National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, making this a crucial resource. Edited by leading authorities in the field, Professor Peter M. Haddad and Professor David J. Nutt, Seminars in Clinical Psychopharmacology emphasises evidence-based prescribing with the aim of achieving better clinical outcomes for patients.

    • Is part of the iconic College Seminars Series, developed by the Royal College of Psychiatrists
    • Integration of basic science, psychopharmacology, and clinical practice gives readers a solid grounding in the basics of the field and provides a thorough basis for prescribing
    • Uses Neuroscience-based Nomenclature (NbN) in line with current policies of most psychopharmacology journals, but older terminology still appears in recognition of clinicians who will likely use both
    • Authors come from a range of professions, covering psychiatrists, preclinical scientists, pharmacists, and nurses, appealing to a wide audience
