Participants will learn the role of technology on the mental health of LGBTQ+ youth and young adults and how to integrate into practice as well as the competencies and conditions for affirmative clinical practice. Many clinicians receive little or no clinical training in supporting the needs of LGBTQ+ Youth in graduate school or beyond, and this unique training offers the specific and emergent strategies to enable competent work with these populations.  Join Shelley L.

Live Wednesday Lecture Series: Zero Suicide: Clinical Guidelines to Prevention
Suicide remains a major public health crisis and one of only three of the leading causes of death that are on the rise in the United States affecting those of every age, gender, and ethnic group.  In 2020, suicide was responsible for more ~46,000 deaths, killing on average 13.5 individuals per 100,000 lives. Coupled with this tragedy is the fact that in 2020, 1.2 million Americans made a suicide attempt and more than 12.2 million adults seriously thought about suicide, with more than 3.2 million formulating a plan. There is a myriad of reasons why people take their life with recent estimates that more than half of people who die from suicide do not have a known mental disorder at the time of their death.  Join Cathy Frank, MD, as she defines the epidemiology of suicide, discusses key elements and describes the Henry Ford Zero Suicide Program.

Live Wednesday Lecture Series: Leveraging Measurement-Based Care to Optimize Child and Family Engagement and Mental Health Outcomes
The most effective mental health services are a blend of science and art. Evidence-based assessment tools and psychotherapeutic interventions are foundational to achieving patient outcomes, but require clinical skill for selection, application, and adaptation to ensure personalized care. Unfortunately, research has demonstrated that our clinical judgment alone is insufficient to monitor patient progress and adjust treatment accordingly. Measurement-based care (MBC) is the routine use of patient-reported progress measures throughout treatment to guide collaborative decisions about treatment. Join Elizabeth H. Connors, Ph.D, as she provides foundational information about what MBC is and how it can be feasibly integrated into mental health services to optimize patient engagement, goal attainment and treatment outcomes.
