Clinical Psychopharmacology
Made Ridiculously Simple™

Morning Session:

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

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.

Course Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Psychologists, Addictions Counselors, other mental health professionals
MORNING COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of the training attendees will be able to:

  • Summarize the concepts of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics in clinical psychopharmacology.

  • List the different reasons non-prescribers should understand clinical psychopharmacology.

  • Describe the effective treatment of depressive disorders with psychotropic medications.

  • Describe the effective treatment of anxiety disorders with psychotropic medications.

  • Describe the effective treatment of psychotic disorders with psychotropic medications.

Afternoon Session:

Prolonged Grief Disorder:
Assessment, Diagnosis and Treatment 

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

 

Prolonged Grief Disorder (PGD) (formerly Complicated Grief) was recently added in March 2022 to the DSM-5TR as a new diagnosis. Therefore, it is essential that practicing Mental Health Therapists understand PGD and how to treat it. Prolonged Grief and PGD is a condition in which grief remains pervasive and intense for many years, even decades after a loss. The symptoms are indicative of pervasive, intense grief that lasts longer than expected by the person’s social and cultural group and interferes with their life. Bereaved people with PGD are typically caught up in troubling thoughts or feelings, problematic behaviors or severe social or life problems that derail the process of adapting to the loss. Grief interferes with their life and impairs their functioning. 


In this workshop, Danielle Glorioso, LCSW will explain the relationship between usual grief, complicated grief and PGD and describe how to recognize the latter. She’ll include strategies and procedures for screening, diagnosis and assessment of individuals with PGD and discuss how to differentiate this condition from MDD and PTSD. She’ll describe simple, evidence-based guidelines for strategies and procedures used in prolonged grief disorder therapy focusing on facilitating adaptation to loss and addressing impediments to adaptation. 

Course Level: Intermediate

Target Audience: Social Workers, Licensed Professional Counselors, Psychologists, Addictions Counselors, other mental health professionals
AFTERNOON COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Outline DSM-5 TR Diagnostic criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorder (PGD)

  • Describe grief and adaptation to loss
