Does Traditional Psychiatry Help Our Patients? FREE Online Webinar

Dr. Iacobello will present the case of an adolescent boy caught in a cycle of angry outbursts and despair, leading to multiple hospitalizations and ongoing psychological and behavioral deterioration.
When Dr. Iacobello first met with Mark and his family at the beginning of Mark’s most recent hospitalization, he saw an opportunity to undertake a different approach to treatment instead of the standard psychiatric evaluation. Dr. Iacobello’s intervention touched a very sensitive spot for Mark and his family and they immediately felt understood, especially the father.
He gained the cooperation of Mark, as well as his family. The boy immediately became less guarded, not putting up his “wall” in all its behavioral manifestations. Over time, Mark responded well to this approach and ultimately developed an ongoing therapeutic relationship with Dr. Iacobello.
We hope you will join us to hear more of Mark’s story and learn about the value of mental health care centered on the patient’s bio-emotional functioning instead of the traditional psychiatric approach that focuses on a list of symptoms and dysfunctional behaviors. Dr. Iacobello will also discuss the weaknesses in the current state of hospital psychiatric treatment.
The webinar will be facilitated by Zoom and will last approximately one hour. Attendance is free. Registration is required. Save your seat by registering today:
