DBH Student Work Spotlight: Assessment and Behavioral Interventions for Chronic and Comorbid Conditions
Introduction by Dr. Fanike-Kiara Young, DBH, LCSW, Director of DBH Program
October 7, 2020
CGI is dedicated to strengthening the clinical and diagnostic skills of our Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) students by expanding their perspective of care overall. In our course DBH 9902: Biodyne Model II: Assessment and Behavioral Interventions for Chronic and Comorbid Conditions, students are engaged in exploring the relationship between diseases and then treating these diseases from the perspectives of the provider and patient.
The role of chronic illness in the healthcare system is thoroughly discussed and students are asked to propose possible treatment solutions which focus on the behavioral health conditions that arise when a physical health diagnosis is present. Students are engaged in treating the whole patient early on in the program to encourage this consistent practice as they progress through the program and beyond.
Below you will find a selection of group protocol papers from DBH students who completed DBH 9902 in the spring of 2020. We hope that you gain some useful information and invite you to share their work within your networks.
