Listening to Prozac by Peter D. Kramer, M.D. "(Dr. Kramer is a mainstream psychiatrist who has noticed the remarkable effects Prozac has had on many, many patients. Not just in treating depression and related problems, but in changing the actual personality. Things like irritability, self confidence, and happiness change. Prozac is the first medication that people describe themselves as normal while taking it, and "not themselves" when off it. He discusses whether changes like this are good, and uses analogies regarding club foot and other disorders to consider whether "cosmetic psychopharmacology" is a good or bad treatment. The reader can expect three insights from this book: 1) how mainstream psychiatry views these issues, particularly personality changes from medication, 2) how Prozac has made a difference for the people who use and need it, and 3) whether treatment of inherited personality traits that cause unhappiness is justified and rational. It's not an entertaining book, but it's a useful book for individuals who want to find out more about Prozac, personality, and the mental health profession)." - Leland M. Heller, M.D.
Traumatic Incident Reduction by Gerald D. French & Chrys J. Harris (Excellent book on counseling someone with PTSD). "Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) explores a powerful regressive, repetitive, desensitization procedure becoming known in the therapeutic community as an extremely effective tool for use in the rapid resolution of virtually all trauma-related conditions. Replete with case histories and accounts of actual TIR sessions, this book provides a "camera-level" view of TIR by describing the experience of performing TIR."

Instant Psychopharmacology: A Guide for the Nonmedical Mental Health Professional by Ronald J.

Discusses antipsychotic medications, antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilizers, antianxiety and sleeping medications. Also reviewed are discussions of "half-life," side effects, prices of medications, what they do and much more. An excellent reference book).

Diamond M.D., Ruth Ross, M.A. (Recommended book for anyone who wishes additional information about antipsychotics. Discusses differences between the traditional ones versus the newer, atypical antipsychotics. Discusses in depth each antipsychotic, whether it is advisable to switch antipsychotics, and tells how they work. Glossary and prices are included as well).
