  • What Neuroscience Can and Can’t Answer: An Informed Look at Pain

    This presentation will provide a neuroscience-informed overview of what pain is, including nociceptive pain, neuropathic pain, and pain for psychological reasons.  We will build on that foundation in a discussion on how to talk to your patients about pain in a way that engages them in appropriate care. 

  • Deep Listening: Cultivating an Environment for Better Outcomes & Transformation

    Listening is an important element to any client interaction, but have you considered it the key to their transformation -- one where you gain immediate trust, build deep rapport, and ultimately realize better results?

    Speaker James Hadlock will discuss another level of listening that impacts clients and provides the environment for deep healing. We’ll also explore the idea that having all the answers, feedback, and advice stifles client breakthroughs.

  • Medication Assisted Treatment vs. Abstinence Based Treatment

    The Substance Use Disorder field has been splintered for much of the last 50 years in regards to what is the most effective course of treatment for addiction:  Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) or Abstinence Based Treatment? The result is that both forms of treatment often continue to serve clients in a fragmented, non-integrated fashion.

  • Opioid Addiction and Its Effect on Today's Workplace

    Addiction affects employees as well as their loved ones, which can also impact an employee's productivity.  Opioid addiction specifically can lead to an increase in workplace violence, reduce an employee’s overall effectiveness, and ultimately lead to termination of quality employees.

  • The Impact of Utilization Management and Documentation on Your Revenue

    With the constant changes in payer policy, audits, denials and more, Utilization Management and Documentation play an integral role in behavioral healthcare.

    During this webinar John Raymond will address specific documentation requirements, effective utilization processes and how to avoid negative impact from chart reviews. The focus will be on supporting smooth claims management through effective documentation and utilization management.

  • The Ins and Outs of Network Participation

    More insurers are reducing their health plan offerings for PPO options in favor of HMOs. At the same time, they’re looking to disincentivize enrollee access to out-of-network providers. This webinar will provide an unbiased look at network participation for behavioral health providers, including how utilization management is leveraged in the in-network model.

  • Family Education & Support: Engaging the Whole Family in Treatment

    Mental illness and addiction are chronic brain diseases that affect the whole family. Research has demonstrated that family treatment improves recovery rates. Individuals and families who experience co-occurring disorders who participate in behavioral family therapy develop coping skills, improve communication and problem solving skills. Every family member has goals and enters into their own recovery.

  • The Wounded Warrior: Caring for the Invisible Wounds of War

    The lifetime prevalence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) ranges from 5-20% of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, and it is the third most prevalent psychiatric diagnosis among veterans using the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals. PTSD is a complex disorder with frequent co-morbidities of depression, substance use disorders, and traumatic brain injury, which often has a catastrophic effect for the veteran and his or her loved ones.
