Primary Care Behavioral Health – Integrating a Behavioral Health Consultant

into the Primary Care Team

In the fall of 2013, more than 140 physicians, behavioral health professionals and administrative staff from more than 40 clinics throughout Oregon participated in a weeklong training series on integrating behavioral health in primary care settings. The comprehensive training series was led by Patricia J. Robinson, PhD, of Mountainview Consulting Group, a national expert on brief, evidenced-based behavioral health interventions designed for health care team members in primary care settings.

The training was based upon a Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) Toolkit, which the trainers have made available through the Institute website.

Focused Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (FACT) Workshop

In the spring of 2016, behavioral health providers from across Oregon gathered for a two-day workshop to learn basic Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) assessment and intervention skills, presented by Dr. Patricia Robinson and Dr. Kirk Strosahl of Mountainview Consulting Group. FACT is a brief, powerful, contextual behavioral intervention approach rooted in the three principles of acceptance, mindfulness and values based change. Clinicians are being faced with the ever growing pressures of how to optimize client outcomes with as few treatment sessions as possible; FACT is useful for clinicians who work in settings that require brief interventions, such as hospitals, jails, primary care clinics, and some mental health clinics.
