We work with Mental Health Service Providers as consultants and trainers in the Evidence Based Practices (EBPs) Wraparound, MST, FITTM, TF-CBT, DBT, and MET. Further, faculty consults with communities seeking to implement other EBPs such as PCIT, Triple P, and FFT, facilitating the implementation and counseling the community on process.
Consultation is offered in the following expertise:
Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy (PBHJP) and the Evidence Based Practice Institute (EBPI) partner with educational and governmental entities to expand the body of research regarding the effectiveness of treatments, as well as implementation of evidence based practices in various communities (e.g. state, county, region, national and international). We consult on grant applications (e.g. Yakima) and consult in implementation of EBPs (e.g. New York)
Partners include governmental mental health provider agencies, private sector providers, legislators, courts, non-profit agencies, and educational facilities. PBHJP’s projects are funded by grants from almost every major foundation and state agency, including the MacArthur Foundation, Paul Allen Foundation, National Mental Health Institute, SAMHSA, and Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services. In regard to juvenile justice issues, we interface with courts, the Department of Justice (various states), and legislators, as well as MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change.
Psychiatry Residents are invited to attend the quarterly Community Leadership Tract (CLT) presentations where leading educators and community organizers present on a wide range of issues. Past presentations include Dr. John Chiles, Director of Western State Hospital and Dr. Barry Grosskopf, Medical Director of Transitional Resources and a psychiatrist with Highline/West Seattle Mental Health.
Monthly Grand Rounds presentations cover a myriad of subjects of interest to faculty and staff of PBHJP. Students and the general public are welcome to sign up for our mailing list and attend any and all presentations. Past presentations can be found on our Training & Events page.
The Workforce Development project has created an exciting interdisciplinary graduate course series for University of Washington students on Evidence Based Practices for Children's Mental Health such as TF-CBT, FITTM, MST, and Helping the Noncompliant Child (HNC).
In addition, the Workforce Development project also sponsors a brown-bag lecture series entitled Referral to Evidence Based Mental Heath which is open to the general public created to help give referrers and those directly involved in Children's Mental Health information related to evidence supported approaches and treatment. Upcoming presentations, powerpoint slides, and videos of past presentations can be found on our Training & Events page.
