Event Description
Spend two action-packed days learning about the newest advances in psychopharmacology and contemporary trends in medication management. From his unique perspective, Dr. Perry Buffington teaches psychopharmacology thoughtfully, with an emphasis on the experience of the client. Dr. Buffington’s years of experience in mental health and passion for clients, shines through in the detail and thoroughness of his 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, Dr. Buffington provides the information you need in order to best help your clients. This conference allows time for exploration of underrepresented areas, including ADHD, substance use disorders and psychopharmacological ethics. Take home specialized guidelines for geriatrics and clients with chronic pain. Discuss how the DSM-5® and the Affordable Healthcare Law have 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. You will find this conference to have the most up- to-date medication information and how to use it most effectively with your client.
