What Does It Look Like to Prescribe and to Take Psychiatric Medications Wisely?
January 23, 2018
Drawing on the results of the first conference, the second conference will move beyond a specifically Christian context to the broader world of healthcare. In this conference, we seek to produce practical resources for both prescribers and consumers of psychiatric medication regarding how these medications might be used wisely, in a way that is attentive to the best medical research, to moral/ethical questions, and to social, political, and historical context. This conference will include thoughtful and well-respected psychiatric leaders, scholars who share concerns about the limits of medical narratives within psychiatry and who seek to place psychiatric medications within a larger social, political, and historical context, and persons who identify as consumers of psychiatric medication.
