Therapeutic Triangles:

The Pitfalls and Advantages of Split Treatment


Managing patient care when the therapist and psychopharmacologist/clinician are separate health care providers


Description: Economic conditions have increased the occurrence of split treatment in which therapy is often provided by the clinical social worker and the medication by the psychiatrist. Often ignored are the meanings of medications as well as the change in dynamics that occur when a third party is introduced in the treatment setting. Lack of awareness necessitates the education of the transference and countertransference that occurs within this dynamic, which can be fatal to the treatment if it is not addressed appropriately.

This workshop will help you gain a deeper understanding of these dynamics and what is needed to improve the patient’s outcome when working within a therapeutic triangle.
