This workshop is an overview of the current thinking in psychopharmacology for therapists who do not prescribe medication. A greater understanding of medications and their uses can help therapists support their clients. Going beyond the well-known antidepressants, the workshop will discuss multiple strategies for augmentation, as well as a variety of indications for mood stabilizers and atypical antipsychotics. Strategies for effective collaboration between therapists and prescribers will be explored.


  1. Participants will understand how to identify three possible ways to augment antidepressants.
  2. Participants will understand why a mood stabilizer could be helpful, even if a client is not bipolar.
  3. Participants will understand how to list three indications for the use of atypical antipsychotics.
