Integrating Psychology and Primary Health Care: Psychologists and Physicians as Collaborators - 2015 Webinar Series Recordings
Integrated care is a hot topic in the discussion about health-care reform in the United States. Integrated care brings together health-care professionals who recognize that health and illness have both psychological and physical components. Interdisciplinary treatment approaches are not only cost-effective, but are shown to improve treatment efficacy. Physicians, psychologists, nurses and other providers work in tandem to diagnose conditions, plan treatment, provide coordinated services, and evaluate outcomes. Regretfully, this trend is not one that most psychologists have been formally trained to engage, even though psychology has significant contributions to make in health care settings. This webinar series will provide an introduction to integrated care in a number of areas, including pediatrics, oncology, and palliative care.

Clinical Applications of Neuroscience Research Home Study Series
This home study series provides the opportunity to train with Kentucky psychologists and neuroscientists in a nine-part webinar series where participants can Talk Neuroscience. The purpose of Talk Neuroscience is to provide psychologists and other mental health providers with a streamlined and accessible forum in which they can consider applied neuroscience research. Each of the nine webinars is designed to initiate an introductory conversation between those who are doing neuroscience research and those who are on the front lines of mental health service. The hope is to increase the confidence of practitioners as they engage clients about brain-based influences for behavior. The first presentations begin with a two-part behavioral neuroscience primer and then progress to specific topics such as chronic pain, addiction, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's. Because these presentations are only an hour to an hour and a half in length, many of these presentations propose other resources for further review of the specific areas of discussion. Moderated by Stephen Stratton, Ph.D. (More)
Religion, Spirituality, and Clinical Practice Webinar Home Study Series

The purpose of this series is to provide psychologists and other mental health providers with a series of presentations designed to consider ethical and culturally sensitive clinical practice with a diverse spectrum of spiritual and religious clients. Each of the fourteen webinars aims to be applicable and clinically-focused. Theoretical, cultural, and empirical considerations will be addressed in relation to practice issues. Because these presentations are only an hour in length, books and articles have been suggested for further review of the specific areas of discussion. Moderated by Stephen Stratton, Ph.D. (More)
