Teaching Note--Meeting the Demand for Behavioral Health Clinicians: Innovative Training through the GLOBE Project
Sampson, McClain
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n4 p744-750 2017
The national move toward integrated mental health and substance abuse service delivery has a significant impact on social work education and necessitates changes in how we train students. To address this need, the Global Leaders of Behavioral Health Education (GLOBE) training project was developed. GLOBE is a student training and stipend program that prepares students for clinical behavioral health practice in integrated care. This teaching note describes GLOBE, reports challenges encountered in its implementation, and provides strategies for overcoming them. The challenges include assigning students to grant-compliant field placements, engaging other health care professionals in the educational efforts, and implementing curriculum changes. Suggestions for social work program administrators interested in integrated care training are provided.
