Psychotropic medications are some of the most widely prescribed medications in the country. Often psychotherapists are working with clients who are also taking psychotropic medications, or who may want to consider medication as another option. It is important that therapists have a good understanding of the indications for medications, the different classes of medications and when they are used, and what to expect in terms of efficacy and side effects.
The role of the therapist in making a referral for medication management is also of vital importance. Therapists can help the patient and the prescriber to ascertain whether medication is having a benefit, and whether changes need to be made in prescribing patterns.
Through this intermediate-level training, participants will build awareness of the importance of their role in making a referral for medication management and ways in which they can collaborate with the prescriber to best coordinate services. Participants will come away with increased knowledge of psychotropic medications used to treat common anxiety disorders, including indications for when to refer, common side effects, expectations for efficacy, and related safety issues regarding medication
