I was often thank[ed] by fellow providers and administrators for my efforts with patient care. […] My experience this year training in the primary care setting has adjusted my professional outlook and led me to feel inspired to sign up for providing brief intervention in a hospital setting, serving as a consultant liaison
My experience with integrated care was important in my development as a psychologist. I now feel confident that I can do brief behaviorally-focused interventions and grateful that I have a way to serve people who need support understanding and adhering to their medical protocols.
Working at the GPE practicum site provided me with a greater awareness of the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration between medical and mental health providers in treating psychological distress. As such, I am able to approach each of my therapy cases through a holistic lens” –Meghan Butcher 2016-2017
