Charles Parker, DO Related seminars and products

Dr. Parker is Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist, certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for Adult Psychiatry. He completed medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Adult Psychiatric training at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, then next completed a Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Hahnemann now a part of Drexel University in Philadelphia, where he served as Chief Resident, and also completed psychoanalytic training with the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis. In addition, he is trained and certified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the use of functional brain imaging. His comprehensive medical perspectives include many levels of psychiatric training and experience, including a special interest in treatment failure and contributory conditions that negatively influence medical outcomes. He is experienced as a personable team player in providing comprehensive medical care through outpatient, partial, hospital and residential care systems also includes years of experience as both an on-site and remote medical team administrator. Those administrative experiences have served as the best lesson-series on the importance of responsibly working within each system. His many years [since 1987] of substance abuse training, recovery systems consultations, and clinical experiences in working within the field of addiction medicine, both programmatic and outpatient, led him to write Deep Recovery – How to use your most difficult relationships to find out who you are, in 1992. Deep Recovery addresses difficult issues still alive these many years later regarding identifying and treating individuals. With each intervention he works to address the complex array of underlying contributory issues. Balanced self-management and relationship consistency with both staff and patients, build trust and team predictability. His more than twenty years of national pharmacologic teaching experience regarding the diagnosis and medical treatments of depression, mood disorders, ADHD, executive function objectives, and self-management/developmental arrest challenges continues with his persistent clinical focus on dysregulated cognition/thinking, cognitive anxiety, growth, maturity, and self-mastery objectives. Interestingly, the conundrums of executive function diagnosis and medication management persist even today, after writing New ADHD Medication Rules: Brain Science and Common Sense, in 2012. Parker’s mission: each medication treatment objective is based upon mutually-assessed and numbered clinical data points – discussed in an understandable way so that all concur and explicitly report on specific, codified treatment objectives. Dr. Parker is detail oriented, passionate about improved target recognition, and determined to develop improved feedback loops with administrative staff, and colleague providers, in addition to patients and patient families, to effectively communicate about specific clinical markers that will support more predictable outcomes.
