  2. Animal Assisted Therapy Introduction Experiential

    This workshop will start with an orientation webinar on Friday, September 11 from 2-5pm. The remainder of the course, which is primarily experiential, will meet at the instructor's farm in Dexter, Michigan on Saturday, September 12.

    This course provides an experiential opportunity for participants to explore animal-assisted therapeutic activities specifically designed to further a wide range of therapeutic goals with children, adolescents, families and adult clients. Like play therapy and art therapy, animal-assisted interventions, when integrated with evidence-based methods including (but not limited to) CBT and mindfulness, trauma recovery, family systems, cultural-relational and psychodynamic approaches, offer opportunities for people to work through a variety of issues and insecurities related to attachment, trauma, self-esteem and identity concerns, dysregulation, behavioral difficulties, mental illness, developmental disabilities, and family and relational problems. With selected animals as therapy partners, the therapeutic team helps people of all ages and positions foster new alliances, understand more fully existing problems and build practical life-skills to enhance confidence, effectiveness and joy. Presently, animal-assisted therapy is gaining acclaim in the field of mental health intervention and there is a growing body of evidence supporting its efficacy and standards in the field to be explored. This course introduces the theoretical foundations, standards, ethics, evidence, certifications, integration of methods, case examples, evaluation and practical skills involved in partnering with a variety of animals, in particular dogs, cats, goats, pigs, horses and chickens (yes, chickens!)- to provide engaging and effective interventions.

    Objectives

    • Identify key concepts in animal-assisted therapy.
    • Define terms associated with animal-assisted interventions.
    • Identify issues pertaining to experiential animal-assisted interventions in the therapeutic farm setting.
    • Identify key ethical and safety considerations associated with animal-assisted interventions through experiential exercises and discussion.
    • Describe considerations for entering into ethical relationships with animals that distinguish between animals as therapeutic partners vs. used as tools.
    • Apply personal skills such as self-awareness in animal activities that focus on engagement.
    • Apply clinical observational and assessment skills through small group and animal interactions.
    • Describe key roles and responsibilities in animal-assisted therapy.
    • Integrate evidence-based and best practice methods with animal-assisted interventions.

  3. LGBTQIA+ Youth in Foster Care: Recognizing, Responding and Managing Emotional Pain

    Suicide is the second leading cause of death in the United States for youth between the ages of 13-24. According to the National Council on Behavioral Health, youth that identify as LGBTQIA+ are 300% more at risk for attempting suicide and have identified rejection and negative reactions from family and social supports as precepitating factors to causing distress. Suicide and self harm have been identified as the solutions to address mental, emotional, and social distresses that don't have a perceived solution. Youth engaged in child welfare programs have an increased rate of exposure to trauma and increased risk to engage in behaviors that are harmful. This course will provide an overview of the prevalence of mental health concerns of LGBTQIA+ youth, introduce emotional pain as a concept to consider as a need to manage in treatment and methods to deliver services in accordance to ethical standards and obligations.

    Objectives

    • Identify what a mental disorder is and prevalence in United States.

  6. Online Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health & Primary Care | Adult Track

    The Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care - Adult Track is designed for clinicians -- such as social workers, nurses, care managers, psychologists, and physicians -- who deliver or plan to deliver integrated health services, and who serve populations often presenting with complex needs in physical health, mental health, and substance use. Participants will gain assessment, intervention, and consultation skills; will learn strategies to apply these skills in the workplace; and will link with a peer distance learning community to practice new skills and discuss ideas.

    Bidirectional Integrated Care
    In this module, participants will build upon their knowledge of integrated care implementation in adult healthcare settings. Topics will include the Chronic Care Model; collaborative care; stepped care; care coordination; and financing integrated health environments. Participants will learn the care coordination standard for integrated primary care and discover new roles in primary care for the behavioral health consultant.

    Assessment in Integrated Care
    Initial and follow-up assessments play a critical role in effective integrated care. This course addresses free-form interviews such as biopsychosocial-spiritual assessment, structured screening tools, and mixed assessment and intervention models such as SBIRT. The strengths, weaknesses, benefits, and limitations of common assessment tools in integrated health environments are reviewed.

    Behavioral Intervention in Integrated Care
    Common elements often form the basis of evidence-based behavioral health interventions. This course teaches and reviews behavioral health intervention skills relevant to everyday clinical practice across disciplines and practice settings. Brief interventions around motivational interviewing, psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, and values-based behavior change can help promote adaptive health behaviors in support of improved wellness. There is a strong emphasis on feasible brief interventions in a fast-paced clinical context and on adapting interventions to each consumer's unique biopsychosocial, socioeconomic, and cultural context.

    Biomedical Aspects of Integrated Care
    Many presenting medical problems are deeply influenced by health behaviors, and a growing body of evidence suggests that mental health consumers, including those with serious mental illnesses or substance use disorders, are faced with a broad range of physical health disparities. In this module, participants will deepen their understanding of bidirectional integrated care for medical issues such as diabetes and obesity, and behavioral health issues such as substance use disorders and depression.

  7. Online Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health & Primary Care | Combined Pediatric & Adult Tracks

    The Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care - Dual Track is designed for clinicians -- such as social workers, nurses, care managers, psychologists, and physicians -- who are interested in the distinct considerations for providing integrated care to both pediatric and adult populations. Participants will gain assessment, intervention, and consultation skills; will learn strategies to apply these skills in the workplace; and will link with a peer distance learning community to practice new skills and discuss ideas.

    Introduction to Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care
    In this module, participants will learn about the nature and implications of integrated care, and will become fluent in the key terms that have come to describe it. Topics will include key public policies affecting the integrated care movement, including the Affordable Care Act; successful models of integrated care; population health management and health disparities; and ethical challenges and opportunities in integrated care. The transition to integrated care will be framed as a paradigm shift from disease-oriented to recovery-oriented service delivery, resulting in new opportunities and challenges, and direct implications for consumers and their families.

    Integrated Health Systems and Implementation
    In this module, participants will obtain knowledge and skills related to the implementation of integrated care services. Implementation of integrated team-based collaborative care presents challenges and opportunities for providers and managers, with significant implications for access to care and patient satisfaction. Topics include basics of integrated health implementation; telepsychiatric consultation; culturally responsive practice; Patient Centered Medical Home recognition; oral health for collaborative care; and provider mindfulness and self-care.

    Foundations of Pediatric Integrated Health Care
    Although "pediatrics" describes the age range from birth through 18 years of age, children develop through a number of distinct developmental, psychological, and social stages. The Pediatric track explores how to address the most common issues of these stages using a pediatric integrated health model of care. Topics include an introduction to the model, the role of the pediatric behavioral health consultant, pediatric social determinants of health, and interventions in the medical setting.

    Pediatric Interventions
    As the health care system is transformed from non-integrated to integrated, many services and interventions can be provided directly to the pediatric population as well as their parents in the medical clinic. Although many clinicians know typical child and adolescent diagnoses from a clinical perspective, this module helps participants develop an integrated understanding of typical topics that may present in the medical setting. Topics include ADHD, pediatric asthma, DD-autism, anxiety, depression, trauma, and adverse childhood experiences.

    Adolescence
    Many adolescents are required to attend at least one physician appointment a year, presenting an annual opportunity to engage them in management of their own health care and in the detection and early intervention of risky behaviors which can have lifelong consequences. Adolescents can be best engaged in self-management when their unique social, developmental, physical and psychological needs are considered. Topics include adolescent-centered medical homes, adolescent sexual health, substance abuse, suicide, eating disorders, and school-based health centers.

    Bidirectional Integrated Care
    In this module, participants will build upon their knowledge of integrated care implementation in adult healthcare settings. Topics will include the Wagner Chronic Care Model; collaborative care; stepped care; care coordination; and billing in integrated health environments. Participants will learn the "care coordination standard" for integrated primary care and discover new roles in primary care for the behavioral health consultant.

    Assessment in Integrated Care
    Initial and follow-up assessments play a critical role in effective integrated care. This course addresses free-form interviews such as biopsychosocial-spiritual assessment, structured screening tools such as the PHQ-9 and the AUDIT-C, and mixed assessment and intervention models such as SBIRT. The strengths, weaknesses, benefits, and limitations of common assessment tools in integrated health environments are reviewed.

    Behavioral Intervention in Integrated Care
    Common elements often form the basis of evidence-based behavioral health interventions. This course teaches and reviews behavioral intervention skills relevant to everyday clinical practice across disciplines and practice settings. Brief interventions around motivational enhancement, psychoeducation, cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, and values-based behavior change can help promote adaptive health behaviors in support of improved wellness.

    Most people used to think that "crisis leadership" is what "they" do - the CEOs, agency heads, etc. This pandemic has taught us that we all can play an important role in helping ourselves and others through crises. This webinar focuses on practical steps you can take to prepare for and deal with crises when they occur.

    We'll look at examples of positive and poor crisis leadership, examine the critical roles that relationships, and communications play during crises, and discuss the important steps to take during and after crises. We'll include specific ways to support marginalized communities that often suffer the most from crises.

    Objectives

    • Identify at least three key steps to take during each of the three major crisis leadership phases: Preparation, Response, and Recovery/learning.
    • Identify at least two of the key factors in effective crisis communications.

  10. Working with Transitional Age Youth with Behavioral Health Conditions

    Transitional age youth, defined as the transition period from adolescence to young adulthood, represents a developmental periods characterized by, among other things, increased risk taking and vulnerability for behavioral and mental health conditions. Yet the social work theoretical, empirical and practice literature remain underdeveloped, particularly for transitional age youth with behavioral health and mental health conditions. Social work practitioners and researchers alike play an essential role in ameliorating behavioral health conditions among transitional age youth. This course focuses on the state of the science when working with transitional age youth with behavioral health conditions. Students in this course will acquire a general understanding of (1) the prevalence and variations of behavioral health conditions among this overlooked and vulnerable population, (2) etiological factors associated with behavioral health conditions, (3) theoretical frameworks to inform practice with transitional age youth, and (4) best programs and practices when working with transitional age youth.

    Objectives

    • Identify introductory concepts as they relate to philosophy (e.g., epistemology, axiology, ontology).
    • Describe the concept of self-of-the-social worker, and work to minimize biases when working with transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges.
    • Identify the most prominent behavioral health challenges experienced among many transitional age youth.
    • List etiological factors and antecedents that shape behavioral health challenges among transitional age youth.
    • Identify theoretical frameworks to guide practice with transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges.
    • Apply concepts learned to case studies.
    • Identify and discuss professional and/or clinical challenges one may be experiencing.
    • Identify ways in which the characters in the film reflect (or do not reflect) practice with transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges, and apply concepts learned in class to the film's characters.
    • Identify readily available, culturally congruent and developmentally appropriate screening and assessment tools for transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges.
    • Identify efficacious and effective prevention and intervention approaches to practicing with transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges.
    • Apply assessment tools reviewed in the course, with a particular emphasis on culturally specific assessment.
    • Apply an efficacious or effective intervention to a case. Participants will demonstrate a case conceptualization based on the theoretical framework guiding the intervention.
    • Participate in consultation with regard to efficacious and effective interventions that they may be currently using in their practice.
    • Apply efficacious and effective prevention and intervention approaches to practicing with transitional age youth with behavioral health challenges.
