OneCity Health In-Person Collaborative Care Training: Problem Solving Treatment
April 12, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
We are offering this in-person training on April 12, 2018 that will discuss problem solving treatment as part of our Collaborative Care training series in collaboration with the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. For more about the training series, click here.
Problem solving treatment (PST) is a skills-building treatment for depression used in primary care and community settings. It is based on the assumption that problems of daily life cause and maintain depressive symptoms, and that through systematically identifying and addressing these problems, people can reduce the number and severity of depression symptoms they experience. PST has a specific, structured problem solving procedure that helps patients to clearly define their problems and set concrete and realistic goals. PST helps patients gain a sense of control over their lives and become empowered to make lasting life changes.
Participants in the PST training will learn the following:
- Learn about the connection between problem solving skills and depressive symptoms
- Be able to identify the seven stages of Problem Solving Treatment
- Understand the concept of Activity Scheduling
Participants will have the opportunity to practice Problem Solving Treatment skills through role playing activities and will learn concrete skills that they can put into practice immediately in their work with patients.
Please note that due to space constraints, we request that no more than two (2) individuals from your organization register for a session. The training is in person and we will circulate presentation materials after training so attendees can share with their colleagues.
This session is intended for Collaborative Care Clinicians (nurses, clinical social workers). Continuing nursing and social work education credits will be provided to participants as applicable.
