Course Description

Last year, more than 300 mental health professionals from California and across the nation chose UCLA?s Fourth Annual Review of Psychiatry as their Fall educational conference. We hope that you will join us once again for our Fifth Annual Review.

Building on the success of last year?s conference, Dr. Michael Gitlin again will chair the special one-day intensive psychopharmacology course which places an emphasis on the latest news in drug selection and medication management. Featured topics include experimental treatments for schizophrenia, adult ADHD, treatment of aggressive/violent states, medications in pregnancy and breast feeding, update on pharmacotherapy of dementa, and experimental treatments for depression.

In addition to our special psychopharmacology update, the Annual Review will feature more than 20 lectures and small-group sessions which will emphasize the state-of-the-art in diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. Speakers will present the most important recent developments in psychotherapy, evaluation and diagnosis, and advanced treatment strategies. Topics for this year?s program include therapies for PTSD, cognitive-behavioral therapy for OCD, eating disorders, psychosocial approaches to pain management, couples therapy, gay and lesbian issues, autism, child abuse, teenage substance abuse and teenage self mutilation. Sessions will include updates on developments in clinical research at the Neuropsychiatric Institute, including work on depression, substance abuse and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

All participants will receive an extensive syllabus including references and copies of slides. We look forward to seeing you in October.
