Mental Health Conference Series: Treatment of Trauma and Anxiety in the Primary Care Setting

November 15, 2022

Anxiety and trauma disorders are common, costly and debilitating. Patients with these disorders frequently present in primary care, but they may present with somatic complaints and seldom seek psychiatric care. Identifying and diagnosing patients with these disorders is therefore particularly important for the primary care physician.

Please join us for this Mental Health Conference Series program on “Treatment of Trauma and Anxiety in the Primary Care Setting” with psychiatrist Shawn Agharkar, M.D., DFAPA. He will discuss the common signs, symptoms and clinical presentation of anxiety and trauma disorders and the utilization of evidence-based pharmacologic and psychotherapeutic modalities for treatment.
