Are you a medical or mental health professional with an interest in learning more about interdisciplinary collaboration in primary care? The Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) model is the future of primary care and is endorsed by leading healthcare organizations such as SAHMSA, HRSA, the AMA, APA, JAMA, and the World Health Organization as the next step in providing effective and quality treatment to patients. This course prepares the medical and behavioral health professional for practice and leadership in primary care settings. Classes are taught by medical and mental health professionals, including Lance Kelley, Ph.D., psychologist, and Jackson Griggs, M.D., directors with the Waco Family Medicine Program, and Becky Bell Scott, M.S.W.; L.C.S.W, Baylor University Senior Lecturer. The participant will be exposed to the theory and development of primary care behavioral health practice. Participants will learn primary care behavioral assessment and evidence-based, brief interventions. Emphasis will be given to primary care-specific issues such as chronic health conditions, mood disorders, and suicide risk considerations. The program is divided into four sections taught over a four-month period. Three of the four sections must be completed for a participant to receive the IBH certification from Baylor University. Course fees are $300 for each section; discounts are available to Baylor alumni and GSSW field instructors and task supervisors.
