The graduate certificate in integrated behavioral health - clinical is designed to provide training to clinicians who aspire to work in integrated primary care behavioral health. Despite the growing need for behavioral health providers who can promote the physical and mental health of primary care patients, there remain few opportunities for specific clinical training in the field. Currently, much of the workforce consists of individuals licensed as social workers and counselors; however, few have received specific training in brief, focused interventions delivered in primary care clinics for a wide scope of health concerns.
Graduates of this certificate program will have a deeper understanding of models of primary care behavioral health, training on evidence-based approaches to behavioral healthcare, and population based health, and medical literacy to ensure applicants have a working knowledge of the skills necessary for success in the integrated primary care arena.
