Pratt’s Behavioral Health team offers integrated behavioral healthcare for all patients in both traditional and non-traditional mental health treatment formats. Traditional mental health treatment involves meeting with a psychologist for 45-50 minutes one or two times per week to address psychological issues that are impairing the patient’s psychosocial functioning. Non-traditional behavioral health treatment includes briefer interventions for five to six sessions that range from 20-30 minutes to address mental health barriers that impact the patient’s overall health and wellness.
Patients are referred to our Behavioral Health team to address a broad range of psychological, social, and emotional issues including: anxiety, depression, trauma/ stress-related disorders, grief, substance abuse, developmental delays, learning disorders, ADHD, eating disorders, and phobias. Other health-related problems addressed include insomnia, pain management, medical treatment adherence, cognitive/memory impairments, weight-loss, and smoking cessation.
Patients are typically referred to Behavioral Health by their primary care or specialty provider once a problem has been identified or suspected. Patients will then meet with our clinical staff for an initial evaluation to more definitively determine the problem and discuss an individualized course of treatment. Once a traditional or non-traditional course of treatment has been determined, a treatment plan will be collaboratively constructed and the patient will then begin treatment.
Depending on the course of treatment chosen, different services may be implemented. A traditional therapeutic approach may include a psychological assessment battery, cognitive behavioral therapy, schema-therapy, medication-management collaboration, family therapy, and group therapy. A non-traditional integrated behavioral approach would include a brief assessment, solution-focused, brief interventions that address cognitive and behavioral changes, medication management collaboration, and behavioral monitoring.
