According to the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, approximately 10% of US adults fill one or more antidepressant prescriptions each year, with many of these prescriptions coming from non-psychiatrists. They are some of the most widely prescribed medications of our generation. As more and more patients are prescribed antidepressants and other psychotropic medications, an increased need and responsibility is raised for non-prescribing therapists to be knowledgeable enough to work more effectively with patients and their prescribers in this arena. The following webinar is intended to be an introductory course that offers general, yet comprehensive information about psychopharmacology, including understanding neurobiological underpinnings of how medications work, commonly prescribed drug categories, how to work more effectively with patients, and how to work more effectively with prescribers. Unique to this webinar will be the inclusion of how to maximize treatment outcomes and effectively use collaborative care strategies.
