December

Whole-person wellness is becoming an integral part of behavior health. Research indicates that a strong mind-body connection helps clients to understand the impacts of their lifestyle choices. This is relevant when helping people to achieve optimal physical and mental health. Within this workshop, we will examine the impact of lifestyle choices on mental health. Lifestyle habits (e.g. nutrition, physical activity, sleep) will be discussed, as well as, supportive ways to help your clients achieving their best health. The workshop will include experiential practices, communication techniques, and discussion-based learning exercises. Upon completion of the workshop participants should be able to: Explain three lifestyle factors that have an impact on mental health; Describe three simple everyday habits that can be incorporated into your practice with clients; Describe two factors that impact motivation of an individual; Demonstrate at least one approach to help clients consider behavior change; and Evaluate your own health and wellbeing and discover the impact it has on the people you work with. Note: This workshop has been approved by the State of Nevada Board of Psychological Examiners for 6 hours of continuing Education, NV18--1113CE.

Although behavioral health services are considered an essential healthcare benefit, access to services is often hindered, especially in frontier and rural areas. One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including substance use disorders treatment and recovery support, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver treatment services and what constitutes typical standards of care. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This two-part training series will first introduce technology-based interventions related to substance use disorders and then dig deeper into ethical considerations for professionals in the behavioral health field.

One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including treatment, recovery support, and clinical supervision, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver these services. Clinical supervision has been shown to decrease staff turnover, improve morale, and lead to better patient outcomes by improving delivery of evidence-based care. Technology Based Clinical Supervision may be a way to overcome barriers to conducting supervision and enhance the clinical skills of the behavioral health treatment workforce. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This training will focus on developing the tools and training necessary to provide quality Technology Based Clinical Supervision as well as identify legal and ethical concerns in providing services in this way.
