Our topic areas for this intensive include:
This session will use clinical cases to teach the basic manifestations of major mental illnesses, discuss psychiatric medications, and review medication side effects.
Major mental illnesses show incredible variation. Understanding the symptom clusters of each illness can help recreational therapists target treatment to the patient’s symptoms and needs.
Understanding certain medication side effects – particularly central nervous system side effects and metabolic side effects – is relevant for recreational therapists.
