Frequently Asked Questions:
If I am already working as a mental health clinician, what are the benefits of participation in this program?
Can I apply after the deadline?
- Many long-time mental health professionals find that the unique needs of IBH primary care require specialized training in order to be truly successful. Testimonials from past participants in this program attest to the vast amount of information that is offered in this program that is simply not available in other mental health classes. Even seasoned primary care mental health workers have found benefit from attending and getting specialized training that is not available in the day-to-day, busy primary care atmosphere. Our sessions are taught by a social worker, a psychologist and medical doctors, combining perspectives and information from all these sources to truly prepare the participant for work in a transdisciplinary team in primary care.
Do you offer refunds?
- If the class is not full we will consider late applications. Please contact Susanna Doss for permission.
- We do not offer refunds as a general rule. If you have extenuating circumstances that result in cancellation please contact Susanna Doss at Susanna_Doss@baylor.edu. Case-by-case determinations will be made.
Do you supply food or lunch during the in-person sessions?
- During sessions, coffee, tea, and light snacks will be provided. Lunch will be the responsibility of the participant. A list of local eateries is available upon request.
How is this program evaluated/graded?
- The instructors will use several methods. Participants will be asked to participate in in-class skill demonstrations at intervals during the sessions. Short open-note quizzes will also be given to evaluate knowledge and skill acquisition.
How is the live course set up?
- The course will include the following: lecture, role play, and dyad/small group discussion.
What if I can’t attend all the weekend sessions?
- We plan to offer the program annually, so consider taking missed sessions at another time. If you plan to get the certificate, instructors recommend choosing the three sessions that fit your needs best. Participants are welcome to attend less than three sessions, and still earn the CEUs, but not the certificate.
