The goal of this six-hour workshop is to familiarize participants with the effects of psychotropic medications used to treat mood disorders. Participants will learn how and when to refer clients for medication management, assist clients in navigating medication adherence, develop an awareness of possible adverse outcomes and side effects, and discuss a broad overview of medication options for mood disorders — along with their risks and benefits. We will review common symptoms of mood disorders and evidence-based psychopharmacological treatments of each, along with the most current research on the efficacy of these medications. In addition, we will also address methods of managing side effects and strategies to aid in advocating for clients diagnosed with mood disorders.
