The Science of the Art of Psychopharmacology


David Mintz, MD

Sponsored by the Ewald W. Busse Lectureship David Mintz, M.D. is the Director of Psychiatric Education and Associate Director of Training at the Austen Riggs Center in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, a psychoanalytic Therapeutic Community specializing in the care of patients who are complex, co-morbid, and treatment refractory. To address the treatment needs of these patients, Dr. Mintz and colleagues developed a psychodynamically-informed, patient-centered model for addressing psychological and interpersonal interferences with the patient's healthy use of pharmacotherapy. His book Psychodynamic Psychopharmacology: Caring for the Treatment-Resistant Patient, and dozens of other publications, explores these principles. Among other things, Dr. Mintz is also the recent past Leader of the Psychotherapy Caucus of the American Psychiatric Association. Link to join:
