Over the past two decades, the use of medication combined with
psychotherapy or psychoanalysis has shifted from an infrequent
occurrence to common practice. Concurrently, attitudes toward
medication have changed from viewing this intervention as
disruptive or as a last resort to a welcome aid in the
psychotherapeutic or psychoanalytic process. However, this
relatively rapid change has created difficulty in the integration
of medication use into the psychotherapeutic setting. Psychotherapy
and Medication is an exceptionally valuable and timely volume that
provides psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, and other mental health
professionals with information on how to work with medication
theoretically, clinically, and technically in the context of a
psychotherapeutic or psychoanalytic treatment.
Important areas of discussion include evidence that a change in
the use of medication has taken place, an examination of the
factors that have led to this shift, as well as a review of the
issues and questions about combining treatments. Psychotherapy and
Medication also serves as a framework in how to best answer the
many questions that have arisen as the willingness of analysts to
use medication increases. Such significant questions include: How
should analysts introduce patients to medication? What are the
clinical advantages of combined treatment? What is the impact of
medication discussions and prescribing on the analyst s role and
how is this best handled?
