Applying Antipsychotic Pharmacokinetics to Best Dosing Practices: Depot Medications
Jonathan M Meyer, MD

The pharmacokinetic properties of a medication can be as important as its efficacy in determining how successful a treatment is. Pharmacokinetics are particularly important when switching to and maintaining long-acting injectable antipsychotics. In this presentation, Dr. Jonathan Meyer explains how to use the pharmacokinetic properties of long-acting injectable antipsychotics to guide decisions regarding the initiation and maintenance of dosing these agents.

Lightning Round: Differential Diagnosis of Depressive States
Stephen M Stahl, MD, PhD

Several disorders, including bipolar depression, mixed depression, and pseudobulbar affect (PBA) often resemble, and are misdiagnosed as, major depressive disorder (MDD). Misdiagnosis of any of these disorders can result in less than optimal treatment for patients, and negative consequences. In this lecture, Dr. Stephen M. Stahl addresses evidence-based strategies to differently diagnose patients presenting in a depressive state with symptoms that resemble depression.

Fear Not!! Naming, Framing, And Containing The Physiology Of Fear...a Wellness Approach
Mary D Moller, DNP, PhD, ARNP, PMHCNS

Up to 70% of adults in the U.S. will experience at least one traumatic event in their lives, and up to 20% of these people will go on to develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This suggests that approximately 44.7 million people have or are currently struggling with PTSD. In this lecture, Mary Moller discusses the biological, social, and spiritual consequences that fear disorders can have. She presents the most current information on evidence-based wellness strategies to manage fear and improve the quality of life for those who suffer from PTSD.

Understanding Disease Models and Treatment Opportunities: Lessons from Metabolism and Inflammation
Roger S McIntyre, MD, FRCPC

The immune inflammatory system is in interplay with other systems relevant to psychopathology and resiliency, playing both an adaptive and maladaptive role. Correspondingly, there is emerging evidence that mechanistically dissimilar treatments for brain-based disorders may target immune inflammatory systems directly or indirectly. In this presentation, Dr. Roger McIntyre provides an update on the immune inflammatory system and its potential role in the pathology and treatment of mental illnesses.

Emerging Treatment Options for Tardive Dyskinesia
Andrew J Cutler, MD

Good Vibrations: An Update on Stimulation Therapies; What’s Legitimate and What’s Not
William M Sauvé, MD

For patients with treatment-resistant depression, stimulation therapies such as cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) have significantly decreased depressive symptoms. Understanding which brain stimulation techniques may be most effective for the treatment of patients with different neuropsychiatric conditions, and knowing which TMS protocols are appropriate for special populations is important for clinicians. In this lecture, Dr. William Sauve’ presents the most current research on what brain stimulation techniques are effective treatment for depression and other neuropsychiatric conditions.

Beyond Monoamines: Novel Approaches to Antidepressant Treatment
Andrew J Cutler, MD

Our understanding of the neurobiology of depression has increased in recent years, there is recognition that the neurobiological substrates of depression may go beyond monoaminergic circuits. In this presentation, Dr. Andrew Cutler provides an update on novel antidepressant treatments that are recently available or in development, including the mechanisms of action that are thought to underlie their potential antidepressant effects.
