David Minney – Patient Aligned Care Team I obtained my undergraduate degree at Syracuse University in the year 2013 with double majors in social work and psychology. In my senior year, I interned at Syracuse Behavioral Healthcare, which is an agency that aims to treat individuals with substance use disorders. At first, I was placed in a community residence, but I was then switched to their inpatient facility. In my undergraduate program, I was active in Social Workers United and I was president my senior year. As well, I received the Bachelor of Science in Social Work Award of 2013. Additionally, senior level social work students were awarded a Chancellors Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship. Steven Armendarez – PACT Social Worker PACT is a fast paced, dynamic program aimed at working with Veterans who are immobile due to medical reasons. The team works closely with physicians and nurses in the field of medical social work. The Veteran’s Administration is considered to be a “teaching hospital,” and as such, the multidisciplinary model is used as a teaching mechanism for staff as well as students. In this setting the student will assess caregivers and family members to determine areas of need, and make appropriate referrals for treatment. There are also opportunities for the student to provide Brief Family Therapy.

During my undergraduate internship, I was placed at Vera House, which is a local domestic and sexual assault victim’s advocacy agency. My internship at Vera House is one that challenged me to my fullest ability at the time and pushed me when they knew I could do it. Because of that, I was completely out of my comfort zone, yet gained invaluable experience.

In this program, the student will treat individuals who have been affected by sexual trauma through group and individual therapy.

In the spring, the student will participate in the BEHOC’s annual “clothesline project” honoring the many victims of sexual abuse, and bringing awareness to the larger community. Janice is a board member with women’s health, so the student can also have exposure to community advocacy through this affiliation.
