The self-paced training provides guidance and skill-based learning for pediatric primary care providers, behavioral health clinicians and community health workers/family partners.
Participants will be given an overview of the signs and symptoms of various mental health issues, the strategies for identifying, assessing and treating children and families, and the different contributions of team members within the pediatric care team.
Participants will delve deeper into their particular role (i.e. pediatric primary care provider, behavioral health clinician, community health worker) to engage in role-specific techniques and strategies to work with children and families in their setting.
Through a variety of case scenarios, participants will be asked to think about their role in context of the larger team setting and ways to work effectively within the team to provide culturally-responsive and patient-centered care to children and families.
