When Does A Medication-Therapy Combo Serve The Client?

Using A Short-Term Safety Net For Long-Term Effective Healing.


It’s tempting to overreact to over-the-top advertising for psycho-pharmaceutical meds, but Caroline Williams believes that suspicion or skepticism may not be in an individual client’s best interest.

In this quick video clip from our all-new webcast series—Meds: Myths And Realities—Caroline urges clinicians to consider two factors when thinking about the role of medication for a specific client:

  • Think about the functioning level of the client. A client who’s struggling with survival and basic functioning issues is not really available for talk therapy.
  • Consider the speed of response to a medication properly prescribed. When someone is severely depressed or schizophrenic or psychotic, a medication that works for that client can pull their energy level and functioning up quicker than psychotherapy alone. At that point they are ready and able to participate in psychotherapy.

Click on the video below to watch and listen as Caroline introduces her practical approach.

This is just a taste of what you can learn from our all-new webcast series—Meds: Myths And Realities. It’s designed to demystify the do’s and don’ts of balancing medications and psychotherapy. You’ll get up to date on the latest developments in psychopharmacology and gain insight about when medications can help and when they can’t.

You’ll learn practical strategies for matching clients—both children and adults—with appropriate psychopharmacological interventions, how to handle client non-compliance, and how to work effectively with prescribing physicians.

The series features 5 recognized experts in the field—Caroline Williams, John Preston, Ron Taffel, Robert Hedaya, and Steven Dubovsky, and the first session begins on Wednesday, May 1 at 1 pm Eastern.
