Walking on Sunshine: Wellness Interventions in Medication Partial Responders – A Practical Manual-Based Approach

Wednesday, October 24
1:45 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: Tangerine WF1

Wellness is often overlooked as an augmentation strategy in medication partial responders. The understandable objections often voiced by clinicians is that they are time-constrained and they don’t have an integrated wellness program to offer their patients. This presentation will inform the attendee of the neurobiology of these interventions, as well as offering a manualized, well-studied wellness intervention for their partial responders.

This session is part of the “New Perspectives in Advanced Psychopharmacology” preconference. Additional fees apply and pre-registration is required.
