Sponsored by CFHA's Primary Care Behavioral Health SIG


Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST




In this webinar, the presenters will provide attendees with a basic overview of the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model.  Additionally, they will discuss how contextual approaches, specifically Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT), can help fulfill the PCBH mission in a synergistic manner. Attendees will be educated on the philosophy of contextualism and introduced to how to structure PCBH patient visits utilizing this FACT approach.  A case example will be outlined and the FACT protocol of “Contextual Interview -> Psychoeducation -> Brief FACT intervention” will be presented.
