This presentation will focus on the potential intersection of neurological and psychiatric symptoms in the evaluation of mental illness. Disorders related to neuro-pathology at times can mimic psychiatric symptoms, and when taken into consideration can inform a broader range of therapeutic approaches both pharmacological and therapy-based. The presentation will include an overview of brain-behavior relationships, brain function and development as well as specific epileptic and frontal lobe disorders. Attendees will also be provided guidance related to assessment to rule in/out brain disease as a contributing factor in a person’s mental health presentation.
Certificate of attendance will be given so you are able to submit for CEUs
