To medicate or not to medicate: Integrating psychotropic drugs and psychotherapy
In this half-day training, Dr Adrian Hayes will introduce the broad categories of medication used commonly in mental health services including:
- their uses and how they work
- their effects and side effects
We will discuss together the effects of medication on engagement in psychotherapy and the role a
therapist can have on exploring a client’s relationship with medication.
We will also touch on the broader relationship between private therapists and NHS mental health teams.
The workshop will include a mix of didactic teaching, handouts, and plenty of time for questions/answers and discussion.
This half-day training will help therapists and health professionals to:
- be informed on the broad categories of psychotropic medications used in mental health services;
- understand how they work, their uses, effects and side-effects;
- build confidence to explore their clients’ relationship with medication and to ask appropriate questions;
- gain insight into the relationship between private therapists and NHS mental health teams
Plenty of time for Q&A.
