Psychotropic Medications: An Update for School Psychologists
Rappaport, Nancy; Kulick, Deborah; Phelps, LeAdelle
Psychology in the Schools, v50 n6 p589-600 Jun 2013
This article provides an overview of medications used frequently in the treatment of pediatric depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. The need for a collaborative relationship between the prescribing physician, school personnel, and the family is outlined. School psychologists can play crucial roles by providing the physician with information at the time of referral, developing school-based psychosocial interventions that augment pharmacological treatment, completing periodic evaluations to assist in symptom monitoring, and alerting the family and physician to any adverse side effects. (Contains 3 tables.)
