Primary Care Providers & Behavioral Health Professionals & Clinical Staff
Wednesday, June 18
Behavioral activation can be a powerful tool to engage patients as active participants in their own wellness. It is a deceptively simple technique that challenges patients to plan a specific, concrete activity that they can start doing right away.
This technique helps patients re-establish routines, increase critical thinking, decrease distorted thoughts, distract from problems over which they have no control, and reduce avoidance behavior.
Jennifer Stone is the Manhattan Regional Director of the Institute for Family Health in New York City and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She is a colleague of Virna Little, PsyD, LCSW, who has provided Alameda Health Consortium clinics with Collaborative Care training and technical assistance. Ms. Stone has experience in individual and group therapy, & training health providers in evidence-based interventions such as Behavioral Activation.
