Deborah Plachta, M.D.

Tuesdays  7 – 8:30 pm November 1 – 15, 2011
Fee $45 (3 sessions)

This course highlights the cutting edge of psychopharmacology to acquaint participants with the major trends in diagnosis and medication.  The aim is to help the clinician recognize when a treatment could benefit from a psychopharmacology consult or ongoing medication backup.  Included are issues of how to approach this with patients/clients, as well as medication side effects and their possible (and impossible) remedies.  Topics included are: depression and bipolar illness; anxiety disorder spectrum  (e.g., panic states, OCD, body dysmorphic disorder, phobias); psychosis; drugs in pregnancy; sleep disorders.  Questions (including case presentations) will be encouraged.

Dr. Deborah Plachta is a member of NYPSI, the American Association of Clinical Psychopharmacology, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and is certified by the American Psychoanalytic Association. Psychopharmacology has been a particular focus of hers for many years, during which she has practiced as psychopharmacology backup for a broad range of patients as part of a tertiary referral group.
