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.
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.
