Essential Competencies for a Health Psychologist

January 25, 2019

12 pm - 1 pm

Neftali Serrano, PsyD – Instructor

Course Description:

Integrated care settings and programs are emerging in greater numbers each year as the health system works towards improving patient outcomes by breaking down silos of care. This webinar will provide an overview of the core competencies of health psychologists and other mental health professionals needed to be successful in integrated care settings. Competencies include clinical content areas, communication skills, program development skills, team skills and temperamental traits which have been found to be essential in integrating behavioral health professionals onto medical teams. Professional identity and acculturation to the medical setting/ culture will be a key area of focus.


Goals and Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe the prevailing models of integrated care
  2. Be able to compare and contrast the traditional role of mental health professionals in contrast to their role on integrated care teams
  3. Be able to name the core competencies of effective integrated care professionals
