Psychopharmacology for Clinical Psychologists and Allied Health Professionals

Format Workshop
Presenters Professor Paul B Fitzgerald and Dr Marlies E Alvarenga
Description Clinical psychopharmacology, while traditionally the realm of psychiatrists, has become a necessary aspect of applied clinical psychology in recent years. Clinical psychopharmacology is a complicated discipline which expects clinicians to have knowledge of new medications and their, at times, complicated and serious side effect profiles. Clinical psychologists work alongside general practitioners a well as psychiatrists and other medical specialists. These professions are mostly dominated by pharmacological expertise which begs the need for clinical psychologists to be more informed and skilled in all aspects of clinical psychopharmacology. In this workshop we use an 'apprenticeship model' with trainees expected to learn about the use of medication in clinical practice through a combination of lecture-based presentations, demonstrations and group work.
