Course Description:

Day 1: Psychopharmacology in Plain English

Clear, Concise, and Current Information on Psychotropic Medications.

Does this sound familiar? Your clients are taking multiple psychotropic medications prescribed by different health care professionals. You watch as prescriptions stream in from psychiatrists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, and others, and you discover that your clients have no idea who wrote which prescription or why they are even taking the medication. You realize that despite the confusion, you still have a responsibility to know your client’s symptoms and reactions to medications, and to coordinate their care.

Dr. Kenneth Carter shares practical and useful information that you need to advocate for your clients. You will get the latest information on antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, medications for insomnia, and others. You will take a close look at the ethical decisions that accompany their use. You will leave better prepared to communicate with your clients as well as the prescribers, as Dr. Carter instructs you on how the medications work, their benefits, and the side effects and dangerous reactions associated with them.

Do you want to vastly increase your knowledge and ability to communicate with your clients and health care providers? The prescription: Register for this seminar!

Day 2: Clinical Supervision in Plain English

So much is asked of today’s clinical supervisor. This person must not only be able to select the best fit among various models of supervision and then embrace that model on a daily basis. The supervisor must also balance traditional supervisor functions while also staying abreast of changing expectations regarding their roles. Legal and ethical landmines, coupled with complexities of cultural sensitivity, only add to the premium placed on supervision training that is current and comprehensive.

Dr. Ken Carter gives you the tools needed to meet the challenges of today’s clinical supervision. You will become a skillful and effective supervisor who can handle the many complex situations you will encounter. You will explore the models of supervision, pick the one that’s right for you, and ready yourself for the tasks and professional satisfaction of doing clinical supervision.
