Course Description

Psychopharmacology has often been viewed as an enigma, a complicated set of concepts which is difficult to understand. Unfortunately, this has led to many misconceptions, myths, and dogma that gets passed down over the years, even amongst trained professionals! Dr. Dadiomov, a board-certified psychiatric pharmacist, breaks down these complex topics and puts them into practical terms so you can begin improving the education and care your clients receive. In this course, we go into the basics of psychopharmacology to set the foundation for addressing common concerns of safety and efficacy with psychotropic agents. You will learn how medications work, set appropriate expectations for medication benefit, and become comfortable in educating and monitoring clients as they start, continue, or discontinue medications.
