Hi Fabulous PHLN Teams! We (Open Door) are considering implementing (or at least piloting) a “tiered” approach to BH, meaning we want to try having some of our clinicians use longer-term therapy interventions/services (vs. just short-term, solution-focused)… similar to Cherokee’s model. Anyone had success with this? If so, how did you handle it and what does the structure and workflow look like? How do you prevent access issues (therapists seeing patients for “too long”)? Are there financial implications to this model?
We have found that most BHC’s want to do multiple different things/modalities so as to avoid burnout in one area. Would folks recommend having all our BHC’s spend some time doing longer-term therapy or just have a few folks doing that specifically and all other BHC’s doing short-term, solution-focused? Thanks in advance for your help!
