Description

Psychopharmacology Conference – Susan Marie

  • Learn current understanding of how & why mental health medications work
  • Increase your effectiveness communicating and collaborating with prescribing practitioners
  • Understand which medications are evidenced-based to best treat which disorders
  • Improve your clients’ responses and clinical outcomes to medications
  • Help your clients recognize side effects and what their options are with these problems
  • Learn about new trends in prescribing, including changes from DSM-5®
  • Understand current controversies in the field

Spend twelve action-packed hours learning about the newest advances in psychopharmacology and contemporary trends in medication management. From her unique perspective as a doctored psychiatric nurse practitioner, Susan Marie teaches psychopharmacology thoughtfully, with an emphasis on the experience of the client. Susan’s extensive 30 years of experience in mental health and passion for clients, shines through in the detail and thoroughness of her presentation.

Clients often only have a few minutes with their prescriber and require additional support. It’s vital that you are able to answer their questions, help manage side effects and understand reactions. Designed for counselors, nurses, psychotherapists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals, Susan provides the information you need in order to best help your clients.

This conference allows time for exploration of underrepresented areas, including ADHD, sleep, eating, and substance use disorders. Take home specialized guidelines for geriatrics, pregnant or nursing women, and clients with chronic pain. Discuss how the DSM-5® has impacted prescribing patterns and the use of psychotropics in newly defined diagnoses. In addition to a general ‘nuts and bolts’ review of medications, you will examine case examples, discuss medication controversies and how to effectively collaborate with prescribing practitioners.

Susan’s engaging presentation includes many take home “pearls” you can use to teach your clients about their medications and how to protect them from concerning, dangerous or adverse effects. You will find this conference to have the most up to date medication information and how to use it most effectively with your client.
