Psychotropic Medication and Psychotherapy with Dr Adrian Hayes MRCPsych
(Event Recording available until the 22nd of May 2024)
Dr Adrian Hayes, psychiatrist and psychotherapist, introduced the broad categories of psychiatric medication including uses; how they work; their effects; and side effects. We wondered if this online event would be a delivered to us non-scientists as a somewhat ‘dry’ presentation of bio-chemistry but, on the contrary, Dr Hayes was excellent at making complex information palatable and easy to grasp. He encouraged delegates to interrupt him with their many questions which he answered in full. This made the online training event highly interactive, lively and engaging. Delegates were able to receive full details of all psychiatric medications, including medication prescribed for non psychological reasons, but which can have a huge impact on the patient’s mental state.
Dr Hayes’ vast NHS experience, working with patients with complex needs and those at high risk, was apparent and impressive. He encouraged the delegates to explore their client’s relationship with any prescribed or non-prescribed medication. Dr Hayes answered delegate questions such as: what to consider re medication with therapy clients; suicidality and young people; ADHD and autism; psilocybin; Covid vaccinations; complex trauma and brain functioning; CBD and cannabis.
Adrian Hayes’ teaching style was relaxed, interactive and highly informative. He was so popular that Bramham Therapy has already decided to invite him back soon for a CPD on a different topic, so watch this space!
A RECORDING OF THIS TRAINING EVENT IS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT JUST £30, available to re-watch or download as many times as you wish until 22nd May 2024. Full slides and medication spreadsheet is included.
