PSY-731D Pharmacology in Integrated Health Settings

2 semester credits
The Mind/Body dichotomy is no longer considered viable in the world of primary health care today. Increasingly, the interplay of physiology and behavioral manifestations is being understood. This combined course brings a basic understanding of brain and body functioning underpinning symptom presentation and the impact of medications on symptoms, and of symptom/condition correlations amenable to behavioral intervention as well as pharmacological treatment. A focus is on psychopharmacology, with a contextualization in the larger arena of presentation to health care treatment centers. Major physiological systems are be reviewed, as well as the medications most commonly prescribed for those conditions. Effects of medications, behavioral interventions appropriate for the pathology presented for these systems, and the role of pharmacy and psychopharmacy in treatment are reviewed.
