Free Tool: Staff Behavioral Health Training
On November 5, 2019 by Jenna Kellerman
LeadingAge Minnesota members can now access a new, free tool that will help address one of the biggest needs we hear from providers across the state: behavioral health. The Behavioral Health Training Series: Improving Care With Curiosity and Empathy provides easy-to-understand concepts, practical tips, and professional development that will help prepare staff to work with older adults with behavioral health needs.
In the series, Dr. John Brose, a clinical psychologist specializing in gerontology and behavioral health, provides a video consultation with the viewer. Each video is about 10 minutes long, making it easy for staff to fit in the training during their shift.
Alongside the video, students will complete an eWorkbook that contains supporting information, activities, and on-the-job practice assignments so that students can cement their new knowledge through real-life application.
The modules include:
1. UNDERSTANDING THE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CONTINUUM
2. WORKING WITH ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION IN OLDER ADULTS
3. MEETING PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE
4. PREPARING FOR YOUR DAY
5. ALIGNING EXPECTATIONS WITH REALITY
6. BOOSTING YOUR EFFECTIVENESS
