Distinguish yourself as the capable expert your clients can trust with their lives

You're in session with a new client and notice she seems exhausted and has trouble concentrating. She tells you she's been crying a lot, has zero appetite, and is having trouble sleeping.

These symptoms tell you that she's likely depressed... So, you start your treatment plan based on that assessment...

But here's what you do NOT know:

Her primary care doctor has recently prescribed her a Xanax-like drug for insomnia. She already talked about her physical symptoms with her doctor, and didn't think it applied to her mood or mental health...

And now, you're getting an incomplete picture of her health. This could lead to inaccurate diagnosis, ineffective treatment, and unintended mental or physical consequences...

Leaving both you and your client feeling disappointed, perplexed, and powerless.

But when you know how psychotropic medicines work in the body and can recognize their effects on your clients, you have the power to provide the absolute best, most comprehensive care possible.

This online course covers what you need to know to make ethical decisions around your clients' medication use...

And reveals how to use the DSM-5®, ICD-10, and online assessment tools to master clinical diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and address frequent comorbid disorders...

...of anxiety, depressive, trauma-related, substance-related, psychotic, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
