Who is this course for?
Despite routinely working with psychiatrists, we often have a hard time knowing exactly under what circumstances we should refer a client. Once we do, we want to inform our client about the process. However, very often, we ourselves have many doubts about the psychiatrist's intervention, what is the use of each of the prescribed treatments, what adverse symptoms they can give, how long the treatments will last, etc.
These two courses have two essential objectives: (1) provide tools for decision-making on referral to psychiatry; and (2) to publicize the different types of interventions that psychiatrists perform, in order to know what to expect and better be able to inform our therapy clients.
In the first course we will learn to detect risk symptoms and identify certain mental disorders that can benefit from a pharmacological intervention. Participants will learn to use tools that provide security and coherence to the decision-making process.
In the second course we will look in greater detail at the different types of treatment most commonly used in psychiatry, what they are for and what effects they may have on our patients. We will also learn about the most widely used prescription strategies, the duration of treatments and the drug withdrawal process.
In short, these are two courses that allow us to have a concise but complete vision of the role of the psychiatrist in joint intervention, in order to improve coordination between professionals and the quality of care provided to our clients.
