Douglas is a primary care pediatrician from Rochester, New York who works in the Unity Health Systems Center of Rochester Regional. He attended our CBT for Children and Adolescents (Level 2) workshop this week and is working on a way to personally use CBT with his patients.
He discussed that behavioral health must be incorporated in the current health care reform, and “now is the time” for that change. It is “vital for healthcare to embrace behavioral health, but there are challenges.” Health care providers are unprepared for the mental and physical health issues that are affecting our modern society.
He enjoyed the caliber of attendees at this level 2 training, and “listening to Dr. (Aaron) Beck’s role play was “quite enriching.”
