How Therapy Enhances Psychopharmacology

Frank Anderson On The Process That Gets A Client’s Body On Board

We know that meds can enhance therapy by allowing a client to be more available to the therapeutic process. But can therapy really influence the efficacy of psychopharmaceuticals?

According to Frank Anderson, it can and it does.

We just added my conversation with Frank as an extra bonus session for our all-new webcast series: Meds: Myths And Realities. And this session really is a bonus.

From his perspective as both a prescriber and a therapist, Franks sees the integration of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology as truly organic. During my conversation with him, he gives examples from his own practice of discerning when the psychological is driving the biological, and vice versa.

In this quick clip, Frank talks about a client who says he wants to taper off his meds. Frank starts the story at the point where the client’s body “speaks up.”

One Response to How Therapy Enhances Psychopharmacology

  1. Thanks for the comment on pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy. I think that at times both are needed to assist clients in symptoms management. I do approach it with caution as well as client and or family collaboration.
