learn more about a classification of psychotropic medications and summarize key points for fellow counselors. Specifically, you will create an infographic that highlights important points about a group of medications. Your target audience is practicing counselors, so imagine that you are creating something for your colleagues in practicum or internship who might want to know more about psychotropic medications. An infographic is a visual image (e.g., a chart or diagram) used to represent information or data. Infographics present complex material in short, easy-to-read, visually appealing ways, so you need to be able to say a lot in a very short space. You are free to select a program for designing an infographic; two easy-to-use.
The infographic needs to address the following areas: type of medication (e.g., antidepressant, mood stabilizer, antipsychotic, anti-anxiety), reasons prescribed/symptoms treated, names of common medications in this classification, average cost of medications in this classification, risks/side effects/precautions, how the medicine works in the brain, and potential drug interactions.
