NTTAP Webinar Series - March 9, 2023: Implement Behavioral Health Training Programs to Address a Crucial National Shortage in Community Health Care Settings
Date: Thursday, March 9, 2023
Time: 12:30-1:30pm Eastern / 9:30-10:30am Pacific
Health centers are uniquely positioned to address the unprecedented need for behavioral health services but are challenged by the workforce shortage. Participants will gain the knowledge needed to begin conceptualization of a training pathway.
Join us to discuss the considerations of sponsoring an in-house training program across all educational levels including the benefits, program structure, design, curriculum, supervisors' role, and required resources.
Experts will provide participants with examples of practicum and postdoctoral level training programs to help them gain confidence in developing a behavioral health training pathway.
