Prescriptive Authority in the Face of Research Revelations
Greenberg, Roger P.
American Psychologist, v65 n2 p136-137 Feb-Mar 2010
Fox and his colleagues (May-June 2009) listed three occurrences beginning in the 1980s that have dampened psychologists' desires to procure the right to prescribe psychotropic medications. That research review highlighted the fact that antidepressants produce a very modest effect at best when compared with placebos. I briefly summarize here some of the important findings that emerged from our original survey and two more recent reviews (Greenberg & Davis Goldman, 2009; Greenberg & Fisher, 1997).
