Making an accurate diagnosis: There are erroneous diagnoses that patients are carrying. This leads to incorrect or superfluous medication management. For example, one of the major diagnostic oversights is the following. There are patients who carry a diagnosis of SchizophreniaBipolar Disorder or Schizoaffective disorder but actually have a constellation of Trauma history, Personality Disorder Trait and Addiction. The patients are on and have been through a slew of meds. Dr. Datta helps NPs understand the patient by gathering an empathic history so these patients can be understood correctly and treated accurately.

Medication Management: Dr. Datta teaches NPs the nuances of both regular medication management as well as controlled substance medication management such as benzodiazepines (xanaxklonopinvalium), stimulants (adderallritalinvyvanse) and suboxone. Dr. Datta completed two fellowships in addiction psychiatry where the training in controlled substances were robust. Dr. Datta also teaches how psychotherapy and emotions are connected to the medications patients are prescribed. Even though Dr. Datta teaches med management, he helps patients find the solution emotionally so they can eventually be off meds. See Philosophy of Medication Management.

Psychotherapy Techniques: Dr. Datta believes that personality, character and life experience is directly related to a person’s psychology and the medication they are on. In the context of discussing patient cases, Dr. Datta teaches the following psychotherapies: psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, family and couples therapy. Dr. Datta believes that in the field of mental health, the focus should always be on understanding and emotional healing. However, there are people who have done genuine therapy for years and are having difficulty breaking through a wall. Medications help get you there efficiently when psychotherapy is done in tandem. Then there are people who are just fine with psychotherapy alone. NPs are shown how to treat each patient in a customized individualized way. Please see Philosophy of Psychotherapy.

Emotional, Psychological self reflection and Burnout Prevention: NPs can discuss their counter-transference toward their patients with Dr. Datta. Transference is also discussed; which is how the patient feels about the provider. Dr. Datta had his own psychoanalysis outside of his residency and fellowship training. NPs can discuss psychotherapeutic issues in their own life with Dr. Datta. This is done because the emotions of both the Provider and Patient play a role in the psychotherapeutic/psychiatric space. Our patients make us feel a certain way sometimes. NPs learn about boundaries so they can maintain their cool and maintain composure in difficult patient cases. So that NP can be strong and balanced and the patients are heard and taken care of in a highly skilled fashion. Here, there’s an importance of self-care and stress management for the NPs.
