⭐ 11 May, 2024 – Understanding Medication for Anxiety and Depression – Half Day CPD course

CPD Event title: Understanding Medication for Anxiety and Depression – Half Day CPD course

Brief Description Of Event: This is a CPD course that is run as a half day online session (3.5 hours), and is relevant for all therapists who help clients with anxiety, stress and depression.
The course bridges the gap between the medical approach to treating anxiety, stress and depression, and the knowledge that therapists have about treating these disorders. This can help give the therapists an insight into the severity of their clients’ conditions, give them an idea whether their clients’ symptoms may be side effects and allow them to understand client’s experience of drug withdrawal.
Most clients that therapists see have used traditional medicine first and with nearly 15% of the adult population taking anti-depressants, it could be a lot of clients that are taking these drugs.
On the course, the following learning outcomes are met:

Learning Objectives: At the end of the session, you will be able to:
• Understand the role of the neurotransmitters involved in anxiety, depression & stress
• Discuss how drug half-life & blood levels & controlled release formulations effect the individual’s treatment
• Identify the key NICE guidance relevant to treating anxiety & depression
• Describe the main drug groups used to treat each disorder
• Understand the way in which each drug group works
• Discuss the side effects of the drugs & issues relating to the cessation of treatment
• Identify how these side effects might impact therapy clients

In the Zoom session, delegates are also guided through the use of a number of additional resources that may be helpful to them.

Course Structure: This workshop starts at 9.30am and concludes at 1pm.
