Presented in Collaboration With CFHA


Certificate Program Details

In designing a certificate program to enrich the clinical capabilities of psychology doctoral students, we’ve taken what we do best at the National Register—presenting complex clinical problem-solving in easily digestible formats—and applied it to the clinical development of psychology doctoral students. Certificate program live training sessions are open to all psychology doctoral students with no charge to attend, but only members of the National Register Associate Program earn the certificate after attending all three training sessions. The third installment of this certificate program is a three-part series on integrated care.

If you miss a session, links will be posted below so that National Register Associate members can log in and watch the session. If you have not yet joined the Associate Program, it’s a quick and easy process and there is no charge for Associate membership: JOIN NOW!

Integrated Care and Traditionally Underserved Populations: Thinking Critically About Service Delivery
Presentation by Eboni Winford and Deepu George (1 hour)
Roundtable Discussion (30 minutes)

Integrated care has always had a population health vision undergirding it and with that focus comes a necessary focus on traditionally underserved populations. In this session, we will review the impact that integrated care has on underserved populations, how population health strategies factor into caring for vulnerable communities and listen to the real-world experience of clinicians with experience in delivering high quality healthcare to underserved populations.

Session 2 on April 5, 7:00-8:30pm ET

Leadership And The Soft Skills Of Integrated Care Work
Presentation by Andrew Valeras (1 hour)
Roundtable Discussion (30 minutes)

A key element of integrated care work that often goes unnoticed in graduate training is the development of leadership skills and other so-called soft-skills like advocacy skills, business development, project management etc. This session will orient the learner to these skills and provide avenues for their development across the early phases of career development.

Session 3 on April 12, 7:00-8:30pm ET
Integrated Care And Chronic Disease Management
Associates Can Watch the Archived Video Here

Presentation by David Bauman and Bridget Beachy (1 hour)
Roundtable Discussion (30 minutes)

Chronic health issues do not just affect the patient, but can cause burnout on providers and be costly at a system level. There is good evidence that providing integrated care can reduce stress on patients, providers and achieve better outcomes. This session will review an approach to chronic disease management based on FACT, Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as applied to primary care settings.
