PRE-CONFERENCE COURSE* Paradigm Shift in Treating Mental Illness: Neurophysiological Approach to Prescribing
Barbara J. Limandri, PhD, PMHCNS-BC – Register for this pre-conference course to fortify your understanding of neurophysiology and neuroanatomy related to prescribing psychiatric medications. This new “flipped classroom” format will provide the content ahead of the conference for you to review. Then during the live session, you’ll apply the concepts you've learned to case examples in discussions at your table. Through these practical interactions with the material and your colleagues, this course will provide a foundation for understanding neural signaling, the breakdown in neural signaling that contributes to symptomatology, and how current drugs affect neurotransmission to mediate symptoms. Additionally, you’ll be introduced to cutting edge research in neural transmission that contributes to novel approaches to psychotropic drug development.*Thursday night Pre-Conference sessions are not included in the conference registration rate. To attend this session and earn 2.0 contact hours, select the pre-conference during registration. An additional cost will apply.
