My interest in social work practice and education is founded in learning, collaboration, support and opportunities for growth.  It is my goal that students leave placement / class with increased confidence in their level of skill, knowledge, and potential to advance change while upholding the values of social justice and human dignity.  In other words, understand the incredible profession that is social work!

The objective of this course is to educate social work students in the direct practice of integrated behavioral health in primary care. Students will become knowledgeable of the roles of behavioral health providers working in primary care settings, theories and models of care, and cross-cultural issues. They will develop skills in engagement, assessment, intervention planning and implementation, and practice evaluation. Because the populations served in primary care settings span the spectrum of severity in both the physical and behavioral health dimensions, students will develop competencies in engaging and supporting patients across a range of health conditions. This includes the essential practice skills needed to effectively address the challenges of integrating services, care, and support for persons with health, mental health, and substance use problems.
