    Impact and Trauma of Racism

    Impact and Trauma of Racism

    Many Black people in the U.S. are born into a life of trauma, stemming from a history of repression, violence, and injustice. This trauma is not something any of us who have not been Black in America can ever fully understand; it is a very personal, lived experience. In this panel discussion, Napoleon Higgins, MD; Betsy Bennett, PhD; and Kimone James, MD, uncover and examine the adverse psychological and physical impacts of racism. One issue they consider is that of microaggressions in the context of systemic racism. Moderated by Caroline Jones, PhD, Senior Medical Science Liaison for the Otsuka Field Medical Affairs team, the webinar serves as a forum in which the discussants share their experiences of addressing racism and explore what transformational change needs to occur to break the cycle of racism and trauma.

    Role Of Pharmacogenetics Testing In Psychiatry

    Role Of Pharmacogenetics Testing In Psychiatry

    Joseph Goldberg, MD, and Lisa Goldstone, PharmD, MS, discuss the benefits and limitations of pharmacogenetics testing on current psychiatric practice based on recent evidence from clinical trials as well as their own clinical experience. Although the identification of genetic factors affecting drug safety and efficacy may be beneficial for some patients, pharmacogenetics testing is not currently recommended for routine clinical use. By understanding the scope of information that current pharmacogenetics testing can provide in psychiatry, health care providers can identify ways that this testing can be informative for patients and providers.
