First Course rated 10 out of 10

First Course from Hume's Community Behavioral Health Training Center Wraps Up
Our first course, Clinical Interview and Psychological Intake Evaluation, has finished with 15 professionals completing the first step toward their certificate in Community Behavioral Health Consultation. This training series represents Hume's effort to share with the professional community our unique way of providing Behavioral Health Services. Through these courses, we hope to help professionals create environments where both consumers and providers are able to achieve their best.

The fifteen participants included Behavioral Health Professionals, Clinical Psychologists, a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, a Psychiatric Social Worker, and Mental Health Administrators.  The course participants gained knowledge necessary to conduct a clinical interview and developed skills to deepen their understanding of the psychological functioning of the individual. The methods discussed went beyond gathering information into observations that can be made of the interactions between the clinician and the person who seeks help. These skills were developed through discussion and consultation.

The outcome was 100% success - the average satisfaction score was 10 out of 10 and every participant wants to return for the 2nd Course, which is focused on Psychotherapy and starts on February 10th, 2018.
