2nd Annual Women in Corrections Leadership Summit
Please note this is an online course.
Trainer: Charles Atkins, MD
This session reviews the pros and cons of antipsychotic/neuroleptic/major tranquilizer medications for people with psychotic disorders. Issues of adherence, anosognosia (the belief that one does not have an illness), and the very real side-effect and adverse reactions associated with these medications will be explored. Movement abnormalities (Tardive Dyskinesia, and acute dystonic reactions) will be presented along with risk for metabolic syndrome (central obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease) and ways to diminish their impact. Motivational and relational strategies to enhance outcomes will be presented.
This training consists of Part 5 of the Psychopharmacology: Truth, Recovery & Wellness series with Dr. Charles Atkins. Although you are welcome to take more than one course, you are not required to take all 8 sessions, nor are you required to take them in consecutive order.
