5th Annual Residents' Conference on Working with Complex, Difficult-to-Treat Patients

March 22, 2024 at 10:30 AM to March 23, 2024 at 3:45 PM Eastern

Free

A virtual conference designed specifically for advanced psychiatric residents (PGY3, PGY4, and Fellows).
This conference, designed for advanced psychiatric residents (PGY3, PGY4, and Fellows), is intended to enhance participants’ capacities to work effectively with difficult-to-treat patients through the integration of psychodynamically-informed and patient-centered perspectives into diverse aspects of the patient’s care. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes of psychodynamic psychiatry are not only useful in the psychotherapy of patients, but also foster leadership skills for addressing systems enactments in relation to challenging patients, and can markedly enhance effectiveness of pharmacotherapy.
