Description

This interactive seminar covers the main classes of psychotropic medications. It also includes clinical materials related to the interaction of psychotherapy and medication treatment of the patients.

Following the revolution in psychiatry brought on by Prozac, the prevailing attitudes about mental health and treatment have been changing rapidly. New medications have emerged and have forced a re-examination of the concept of treatment. A basic understanding of psychotropic medications is now essential in any psychotherapy practice. At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be familiar with the main classes of psychotropic medications and how they affect their patients and the psychotherapy process. They will also learn when to consider a psychiatric evaluation and how to communicate the idea to their patients.

Dr. Kamran Rahmani, the presenter of the seminar, is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. He is an active member of American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Dynamic Psychiatry, American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology and Association for Academic Psychiatry. Dr. Rahmani is recognized by the New York State Education Department’s State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #0019.

This seminar is continuously revised and updated. Attending this seminar is open to the mental health providers of all disciplines.
