Description

Marijuana products have greater potency and higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than ever before. THC levels in marijuana products are regularly exceeding 20%, but this is mild in comparison to various and popular types of cannabis concentrates collectively known as “dabs".

According to studies compiled by the National Institutes of Health, high concentrations of THC can increase a person's risk of experiencing psychosis.

As a result, mental health specialists are faced with a clinical dilemma - how to clearly identify a substance-induced psychosis from a primary psychotic illness or a psychotic illness with comorbid substance use. This could possibly be a subtle conundrum and a chance for elucubration, yet it becomes vastly more important when treating and choosing the best therapeutic strategy for patients.

So, for this course, Dr. Jeremy Sharp sits down with Craig Heacock to take a deep dive into substance-induced psychosis. Here are a few discussion points that come up:

  • What exactly is substance-induced psychosis?
  • Is it qualitatively different than “regular” psychosis?
  • What are the risk factors for developing substance-induced psychosis?
  • What is the prognosis after a substance-induced psychotic break?

Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses.

This CE course is designated as beginner.
