primary care redesign
Primary Care Redesign
  • More than adding services to primary care, or simply adding traditional mental health philosophies, skills & interventions in a new setting
  • Requires systems redesign
  • Providers shift from independent clinician to a functioning team member
  • Each member of the team must understand enough about the discipline & training of team members to communicate effectively and to design collaborative interventions that will meet the needs of the patient.
Every great change must expect opposition because it shakes the very foundation of privelege.Lucretia Mott

creative arts therapies
Creative Arts Therapies

Creative Arts Therapies (CATs) are the psychotherapeutic use of movement/dance, music and art to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual. CATs are behavioral health therapists who integrate evidence from fields like neuroscience, human development and behavior, counseling, psychopathology and multiculturalism to develop their practice of assessment and treatment. Both individual and group therapy is provided. CATS serve as primary counselors for our patients, and treat in conjunction with talk therapists, physical therapists, nurse practitioners and the nutritionist, for example.
