Join me to learn the basics of Psychopharmacology! In this training I will cover: -Basic terminology -Neurotransmitters (in relation to the medications that are targeting them) -Medical treatment of Depression, Bipolar Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Schizophrenia, and more. This will include me talking about medications for each condition, common side effects, psycho education around these medications and scripts you can use with your clients who are considering, or taking medication for this presentation. I will also include information about risk factors and warning signs that you need to be aware of when treating these clients. I will answer questions like: -When should someone with one of the above conditions be medicated? -What are some underlying health conditions or medications that can cause the above mentioned disorders? This PD will be sufficient for those preparing for the National Psychology Exam, and wanting to tick off this section of the curriculum. This would also benefit any psychologist working in a clinical setting to increase their skills and competence around psychopharmacology. This workshop will count as 2 hours of professional development.
