Psychiatrist Mark Ragins writes in Community Psychiatrist about a new approach to his practice, “Prodded by Robert Whitaker’s books, I feel the need to build a more comprehensive approach to ethical and effective prescribing than I was taught or modeled or even than is expected of me. Here are four more foundations I’m building: 1) Individualized prescribing, 2) Recovery based prescribing, 3) Trauma informed prescribing, and 4) Toxicity informed prescribing.”
