Course Description & Educational Goals

While psychiatry assumes the authority of modern medicine, there are fundamental problems within the field. Currently, 1 in 6 Americans takes a psychiatric medication, yet there is debate over whether antidepressants are more effective than placebo, while benzodiazepines almost certainly do more harm than good. In this talk, we’ll put psychiatry on the couch and discuss how psychiatrists and MFTs can work together to better serve our clients.

Learning Objectives

1.    List three limitations of psychiatric medications. 

2.     Explain two ways the medical model is applied to psychiatry, as well as the validity/reliability of the DSM.

3.    Describe the one concept related to the approach of             integrative psychiatry.

Our Presenter: Shawn Barnes, MD

Shawn Barnes M.D. completed residency in psychiatry at UCSD and is a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice in Encinitas. He practices integrative psychiatry, combining medication-based psychiatry with therapy-based approaches and holistic-based treatments (nutritional support, vitamin/mineral supplementation, herbal medicine, breath-work, mind-body medicine, lifestyle optimization, and mindfulness).
