Clinical Psychopharmacology Made Ridiculously Simple

CE Hours 3

About this live event

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. 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. In this webinar we will discuss the effective use of psychiatric medications, basic pharmacological and neurobiological principles as they relate to clinical psychopharmacology and help clinicians be in a better position to help clients maximize outcomes from medication therapy.

Learning Objectives
