    Michael Bolton, MD presents on

    The Symbiotic Relationship Between Psychiatry & Therapy

    Many factors contribute to what's currently going on in one’s life,
    including biology, psychological make-up, relationships, other social factors,
    spirituality, and childhood experiences.

    Some people don't fit neatly into a diagnostic category, nor does a diagnosis ever fully explain what may be "wrong" in your life. What causes you to feel
    badly may be due to factors within your body (biological factors), the way
    you think about things (psychological factors), your relationships, your
    family, your job, your finances, or a combination of these (social factors). In
    addition, everyone has a unique history that influences all of the above. An
    understanding of these bio-psycho-social factors is an important first step to
    feeling better. Rigid diagnostic labels may miss the nuances that make your
    situation unique, and therefore the focus starts with your individual history
    and situation.

    In order to feel better or change something in your life the solution may
    require a new direction. Medications may be helpful to some people, but I
    am taking people off their medications when they are no longer needed.
    Therapy is critical in the journey toward behavioral health.

    Learning Objectives

    • Summarize 2 essential elements of psychiatry patients working in tandem with a therapist
    • Name 2 common problematic outcomes for patients whose psychiatrist does not work in tandem with therapist
    • Demonstrate 2 positive, observable results typically reported by clients                         

    Michael Bolton, M.D., treats adults of all ages. He specializes in issues related to positive psychiatry, well-being, achievement in college and at work, specifically ADHD. His focus on people’s
    strengths and abilities rather than on their weaknesses is an
    approach he’s seen lead to greater change and lasting benefits. He
    earned his medical doctorate at Yale University’s School of
    Medicine, a master’s degree in health policy and management from Harvard University’s School of Public Health, and undergraduate at UCSB.
