  1. Behavioral or "Process" Addictions

    For the majority of time that addiction treatment has been available in the United States, the focus has been on the destructive misuse of alcohol &/or other chemical substances. However such "process addictions" as gambling, compulsive sexual behavior, and an increasing variety of internet-related pursuits have gained increasing amounts of attention, as unchecked involvement has led to negative outcomes that have impaired quality-of-life and crippled level-of-functioning for many. This webinar will discuss cross-cutting elements found to be common to all forms of chemical and behavioral addiction, as well as reviewing existing recovery resources and further implications for treatment & recovery.

  2. 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. This courses emphasizes the medical sequelae commonly associated with behavioral health diagnoses and psychotropic medications. There are special sections on primary care psychopharmacology and prescription drug abuse.

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

    The Certificate in Integrated Behavioral Health and Primary Care - Combined 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. 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.

  5. Increasing Access to Services in Private Practice

    This webinar will explore the specific areas of design and influence that will allow a private practice to become increasingly accessible and informed by the values of social justice. The workshop will address a variety of concerns expressed by marginalized groups when seeking mental health care. We will also define the goals of mental healthcare and availability of well-being services are often limited by SES and access to services. Case studies will illustrate examples of private practice outreach and service delivery that increases response to community need.

  6. Clinical and Ethical Issues with Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth: A Deeper Dive

    This webinar will offer a working definition of terms, including Transgender, Gender Identity, Gender Expression, Intersex, Gender Nonconforming, Non-Binary, Intersex, Gender Transition, and Ally. Language and terminology will be examined with emphasis on using affirming language and avoiding offensive terminology.

    This webinar will examine mental health risk factors that impact transgender youth from an ethical lens. These risk factors include a 40 percent rate of attempted suicide, increased incidence of anxiety and depression, bullying, and social and familial rejection, all of which can exacerbate mental health issues.

    This webinar will focus on clinical interventions with an emphasis on delivering these interventions from an ethical and evidence-based lens. We will focus on two complex cases: Luna, a case involving parental disagreement with regard to permitting a transgender 7-year-old girl to commence a social transition and the second case, Patrick, will focus on complications that arise when a transgender adolescent is permitted (by the parent) to access hormones to initiate a medial transition without medical supervision and absent mental health consultation.

  8. 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.
