  • Examine specific techniques and situations that arise from the treatment of complex patients, including but not limited to personality disorders, active addiction issues, and difficult patient interactions. 
  • Understand the benefits of an integrated care model for psychiatry and discuss how integrated care can assist both our patients and our providers.
