The Psychiatrist's Toolbox: When all one had was Prozac, everything looked as though it needed more serotonin. These days the number of medical treatments for psychiatric disorders continues to grow rapidly and beyond just medications. This session will orient you to the major somatic treatments available, their possible benefits as well as potential risks.
