Clinical Psychopharmacology Made Ridiculously SimpleTM On Demand
Non-prescribing therapists are crucial to the effective and safe use of psychiatric medications by their clients. In contrast to clinicians who focus primarily on medications, therapists generally spend more time with their clients and are more familiar with their history and current situation. They also tend to develop a greater rapport. And considering that most clients diagnosed with depression, anxiety, psychosis, posttraumatic stress disorder, and virtually every other psychiatric disorder receive pharmacological interventions, the non-prescribing therapist needs to understand how psychiatric medications work, their limitations and side effects, and how to help their clients maximize gains through increasing medication compliance. Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will understand the effective use of psychiatric medications, basic pharmacological and neurobiological principles as they relate to clinical psychopharmacology, and be in a better position to help clients maximize outcomes from medication therapy.
