What Every Therapist Should Know About Working With Prescribed Psych Drugs


From The British Psychological Society: “A suite of new training materials has been created to enable students to feel confident to have conversations with clients about prescribed psychiatric drugs.

The British Psychological Society has been involved in a collaborative project with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, the UK Council for Psychotherapy and the Beyond Pills All-Party Parliamentary Group (2020 – May 2024) to deliver guidance materials for psychological therapists to support them in working with issues of prescribed drug dependence.

The freely available training materials – including talks from experts, and interviews with people who had experienced problems withdrawing from psychiatric drugs – are available for use for the next academic year and will enable course providers to meet Health and Care Professions Council requirements around understanding psychopharmacology.”
