Psychotherapists' Perceptions and Understanding of Pharmacotherapy.
Brammer, Robert; Haller, Katherine; Roberson, Janice
Attendees at the 1998 Texas Counseling Association's annual convention were given a brief survey and short test on psychopharmacology. Analysis was performed to examine the effects of demographic and ideological variables. The model moderately explained the variance on the psychopharmacology test with only 2.5% of the adjusted variance explained by the demographic and ideology variables. Even those who had taken courses in psychopharmacology failed to score significantly higher than their peers. A strong relationship was determined between the demographic and ideological variables and the perceived need for additional training in psychopharmacology. Practitioners with more clinical experience and more coursework in pharmacology believed more medical courses should be required in their respective disciplines. (Contains 37 references.)
