Your Complete Guide to the Uses and Side Effects of Psychoactive Medications

Psychoactive medications are an indispensable part of treating many mental health problems. Patients are often prescribed several medications from different physicians. Do you feel like you should know more about how these medications work and why they are prescribed? Knowledge about the major psychoactive drug classes will help you answer clients’ questions with greater confidence, accuracy, and effectiveness, thereby improving your delivery of patient services.

This recording gives you the tools needed to more effectively communicate with your patients and prescribers about how these medications work, their benefits, and the side effects and dangerous reactions associated with them. Learn from an expert, N. Bradley Keele, PhD, who has over 20 years of psychopharmacology research experience and teaches clinical neuroscience and psychopharmacology at Baylor University.
