I have been coming to the Psychopharmacology conference every other year for the past 20 years or so and I have always found it extra-ordinarily helpful to my practice. The teaching is superb. The content is wonderfully clinically based and useful. I come away feeling confident that I am practicing within the standard of care and with evidence-based approaches.
I found this course extremely insightful and have already started implementing techniques with patients to help them challenge negative thoughts & beliefs. I have also used it to help my patients see alternative perspectives for negative thoughts or beliefs they hold. It has already helped some patients gain insight.
This was fantastic! I appreciated the superior quality and depth of the information you presented. I appreciated that it was presented by the experts in that field and without commercial bias. It was evidence based, well organized, and had immediate applicability in my practice.
I so look forward to this course each year! I always leave feeling well informed with renewed enthusiasm for how interesting this field is to work in!
