Promoting Behavior Change in Primary Care (and Other Brief Settings!)
Saturday, September 15, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
Portland, United States
Increasingly, behavioral health clinicians provide services in brief settings, such as primary care, behavioral medicine clinics, in-patient units, jails, and juvenile detention centers. To succeed in these practices, clinicians need potent behavior change tools that (1) promote immediate change, (2) support team-based interventions, (3) enhance client experience of continuity of care among different systems of care and (4) apply equally well to a wide variety of behavioral problems. The ACT model for promoting Psychological Flexibility meets these requirements. This workshop provides an overview of principles for successful implementation of the model, illustrations of individual and group applications and strategies for applying the model to promote primary care provider resiliency.
After attending this training, you will be able to:
- Use interviewing questions that promote use of the Psychological Flexibility model in brief treatment settings
- Explain a case conceptualization tool for planning a brief intervention
- Apply interventions that can be supported across settings and among diverse disciplines to help patients initiate and sustain behavior change
- Discuss how to use the Psychological Flexibility model to improve provider resiliency in brief treatment settings
This workshop is intended for behavioral health providers, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and primary care providers who have some knowledge of behavior change interventions and want to learn more about use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in brief intervention settings, such as primary care clinics, jails, emergency rooms, and schools.
Patricia J. Robinson, PhD, has explored integrated care from the perspective of a clinician, researcher, trainer, and health care consultant for the past twenty years. Current activities include providing consultation services to health care systems that are (1) integrating behavioral health services into primary care, (2) seeking to improve treatment of chronic pain, chronic disease and care to children, women, and/or the elderly, and / or (3) attempting to increase use of brief evidence based cognitive behavioral therapies in primary care and other medical settings.
She is an author of five books, including Behavioral Consultation and Primary Care: A Guide to Integrating Services (with Jeffrey T. Reiter) (Springer, 2007), The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Depression (with Kirk Strosahl) (New Harbinger, 2008), and Real Behavior Change in Primary Care: Strategies and Tools for Improving Patient Outcomes and Increasing Job Satisfaction (New Harbinger, 2011), as well as numerous other articles and book chapters.
