Social Work in Healthcare Settings


Presented by Terri Cooley Bennett, LCSW, LSCSW, CCDP-D

6.0 Clock Hours
This course meets the Ethics requirement for licensure renewal.


Social Workers are often key members of interdisciplinary teams in health-care settings.  In Missouri, Medicaid has established billable codes for “Behavioral Health Consultants”.  A Behavioral Health Consultant is part of an interdisciplinary team providing integrated care in a medical setting.  As part of the Integrated Care Team, a social worker has unique challenges regarding patient/client care, as well as a unique opportunity to intervene with clinical skills in a setting that typically may not have behavioral health interventions.  According to the American Psychological Association (2012), “The U.S. health care system typically regards the Primary Care Physician (PCP) as the first point of contact for a client who is accessing medical services of any kind, whether the need is for basic health, mental health, or substance abuse treatment.”  This article also found that 70-85% of visits to the primary care clinic are due to psychosocial and behavioral causes (as sited by Gatchel & Oordt, 2003; Kroenke & Mangelsdorf, 1989).  Studies on integrated care examine integrating mental health and primary care systems (APA, 2012).  It is exciting and challenging to be able to intervene with a client, in a medical setting, who has behavioral health concerns that have not been dealt with in the past.  This workshop will examine issues related to social work practice in medical settings, not only in primary care, but in other settings as well.
