Dr. Kent A. Corso, veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, opens our minds to the uniqueness and importance of the American men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our benefit. The military and veteran population remains a unique and growing subculture within America, particularly since 9/11. Like any other culture military and veteran values, customs, language, and shared experiences help define their needs, strengths and weaknesses. This presentation invites a campus-wide audience including faculty, staff, and students to hear factual information about our latest generation of patriots. Attendees will learn about some of the experiences military service members and veterans share when enrolling in higher education following military service. Attendees will benefit by understanding culturally coherent ways of interacting with the military service members and veterans around whom they live and work.
Dr. Kent A. Corso, clinical health psychologist and board certified behavior analyst, discusses the most significant paradigm shift in behavioral healthcare delivery since the inception of psychotherapy. He outlines the critical problems with current behavioral healthcare and reasons why integrating behavioral health into primary care is the ideal option for clinical and cost effectiveness. Dr. Corso briefly summarizes the research in this area of the field including a description of his own research on the primary care behavioral health model – one of four formal types of integration. He explains how the primary care behavioral health model dovetails with population health and public health models. He also elucidates how the Affordable Care Act and the Patient-Centered Medical Home Model make the current medical field incredibly fertile for integrating behavioral health into primary care. We invite the attendance of the faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in the Psychology Department as well the faculty and students in Nursing and Human Development.
