A Conversation about Medication and Trauma Treatment
Treating trauma can be complex and many times it takes several systems working together to wrap around the client in a way that feels supportive.
Over the years, I have learned to be effective in my work I have to have a number of referrals that provide a range of services. One referral source that I find invaluable is having a good psychiatrist that I can work with.
I don’t know as much as I would like about medication and how it can help treat trauma, so one of my goals has been to explore this topic more. This week I decided to bring you along on my journey where I discuss with Dr. Neelima Kunam, a psychiatrist.
In this week’s vlog, we discuss the most commonly prescribed medications for trauma-related disorders, we talk about what are some important things therapist can assess for on a weekly basis related to medication, information that might be helpful in providing to the psychiatrist, and what to look for in a good psychiatrist as you are building your referral network.
