Testimonials

“With the knowledge learned from this class I will feel more comfortable as an RN in administering these medications. I will be better able to make appropriate requests/suggestions to the MDs that I work with regarding various medications, supplements, etc available for patients that might benefit them.”

“Kathy was excellent. She was a wealth of both knowledge and experience. She was well organized and prepared. She covered a lot of information in a short amount of time, but kept a comfortable pace.”

Details

Current medications for psychiatric disorders are frequently not enough to completely remediate patients’ symptoms. This course provides learners with research-based natural medicine options for either entirely managing symptoms or augmenting conventional psychotropics. Case studies and discussion will illuminate use of these for specific disorders. Participants will also experience yoga practices tailored to some of the disorders targeted in this presentation. Wear comfortable clothing.
