Overview

Clinical Psychopharmacology Made Ridiculously Simple Home Study (3 CEs) is organized by TZK Seminars.

Description:
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 moretime with their clients and are more familiar with their history andcurrent 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 nonprescribing 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.

This course is designed to present the non-prescribing mental health practitioner with a review of basic concepts in clinical psychopharmacology and the effective use of common psychiatric medications in the treatment of mental health conditions. Effective medication strategies for treating depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, sleep disorders, and other common psychiatric conditions are covered in detail. Basic general pharmacological concepts such as pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics are reviewed as are more specific concepts such as drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination. You will also become aware of common medication treatment errors to avoid and learn tips for helping your clients become more educated about the medications they take as well as help them manage their side effects.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this seminar, participants 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.
