Listening to Prozac (DE) 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 (TIR) (UK) (DE) 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."
Breakthroughs in Antipsychotic Medications: A Guide for Consumers, Families, and Clinicians by Peter J. Weiden, M.D., Patricia L. Scheifler, M.S.W., Ronald J. Diamond, M.D., Ruth Ross, M.A. (Written in 1999, discusses all aspects of antipsychotic medications, including a glossary). "I think every doctor and clinician should have this book as a reference. It is also useful for family members and patients. It is the best one that I have found that gives clear information regarding the benefits of clozapine, risperidone, and olanzapine as well as guidelines for changing from the older medications that have more risk of tardive dyskinesia. If you only buy one book on up-to-date treatments, this is the one! There are chapters with advice for patients as well. I gave a copy to a friend who needed this information, so am ordering another!"
