Using Candy to Teach Counselors to Teach Clients about Medication Compliance
Shaffer, Tammy
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v17 n3 p251-255 2009
Schizophrenia and other serious mental illness hinder medication compliance. Clinicians are often challenged to increase clients' medication compliance, but lack the tools to enhance consistent treatment compliance. Counselor educators enhance their course instruction by offering a specific counseling tool to students. Those working directly with clients can also use the tool to work with clients to increase medication compliance, thus improving treatment outcome. The role of family in medication compliance is discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
