Sat. Sept. 9 Psychopharmacology Part II, 10 am – 12 pm with Karen Wall, EdD, LMFT, new WISR Faculty, Facilitator

As mental health practitioners, our work is to provide services with the goal of helping our client to reduce emotional pain, and to promote psychological growth and healing. Psychiatric medications are increasingly being prescribed by providers who are not psychiatrists; therefore, it is important for non-medical mental health providers, such as therapists, to be familiar with these medications in order to be able to monitor client responses for efficacy and side effects of the medications, and compliance in our clients who are taking these medications.

Regardless of the therapist’s degree of involvement or interest in medication management, the large body of evidence demonstrating the connection between certain mental disorders and neurochemical imbalances has made it important for therapists to be able to address medication-related topics that are directly related to diagnoses and referrals.
