Therapists and analysts describe their work as acting on the mind. However, when we introduce medication into a treatment, we feel less sure about expressing our expectations in mind-based language. In this talk, we will ask whether we may reasonably speak of medications as acting on the mind and its dynamics. We will briefly review classes of medications and review several languages which describe medications’ effects on the mind. We will end by wondering how therapists and prescribers can communicate about their expectations for treatment.
