Offering user-friendly, authoritative guidance on cutting-edge psychopharmacologic and somatic treatments for psychiatric and neurologic conditions, Massachusetts General Hospital Psychopharmacology and Neurotherapeutics, 2nd Edition, helps you put today’s best approaches to work for your patients. Composed of [RM1] topical chapters primarily from the third edition of Stern et al.’s Massachusetts General Hospital Comprehensive Clinical Psychiatry, this fully revised resource focuses on current psychotropic treatments, electroconvulsive therapy, and neurotherapeutics, making it an ideal quick reference for psychiatrists, psychologists, internists, and nurse practitioners.
[RM1]Dr. Stern asked for “Comprised by” but comprised is a tricky word (I would typically say “comprised of,” but that’s also questionable), so can we change this to “Composed of”?
New to this edition

  • progress on the use of neurotherapeutic interventions (e.g., vagal nerve stimulation, deep brain stimulation)
