Consulting Services & Training
I consult, train and support clinicians and direct care workers who have been exposed to vicarious trauma.
I assess their facilities/agencies to help decrease the amount of burn out and disability claims occurring from their symptoms.
I advise Primary Medical Practices, Medical and Nursing schools (Physicians & NPs in training, and Administrators ). I provide knowledge and a best practice framework to MDs and nurses to help optimize the management of patients utilizing or requesting opiates and other narcotics from an ethical, regulatory and risk management perspective.
I provide graduate schools with teaching and training curriculums to enrich their students’ integrative clinical problem solving and assessment skills. I advocate for Social Work clinical practices in this era of DISRIP and Collaborative community-based medical/psychiatric practices that require a new level of integrative thinking and problem solving.
Today’s complex world requires rapid – on your feet – thinking and knowing when and how to collaborate with colleagues. Recognizing what to do when you have risk-based decisions to make on your own without the immediate consult of others is also a vital skill set. Developing independent, mature and responsible thinkers is my focus at all times.
