    Behavioral Health & Humor: The Vital Connection

    in Psychology

    Bob Zima, MA/LCPC, is a self described Frequent Flyer to Hell and Back. He has experienced many trips to the Gates of Hell and lived to tell the tale. Plus he has learned a thing or two along the way. Refreshing.


    On his cathartic & satirical podcast Bob shares with you his quirky and wacky insights, lampoons his art of healing and life lessons learned from his adventurous and E-True Hollywood-esque trips to Hell and back. Perhaps you may be inspired by this irreverent, blazon and passionate cathartic satirist who tells it like it is. Perhaps not. You will have to listen to find out.


    This show is for mature audiences with open minds and souls. Healing is NOT for wimps or the weak-hearted. It is work. Hard work!


    On today’s show, Bob discusses how HUMOR is one of the most important psycholgical fitness skills one can develop.

    Grant Funding for Behavioral Health: An Interview with Karen Celedonia

    in Psychology

    An often under appreciated area of Behavioral Health is the grant writing process. Many of the agencies we work with are not-for-profit and always looking for help maintaining their existing grants as well as obtaining funding from new sources. We met Karen Celedonia through our colleague Theresa Wray. Working on projects together to support mental health agencies, we knew we needed to interview Karen and introduce her work to our providers.

    Corrections Counseling - Behavioral Management in Community Corrections

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will be reviewing the effectiveness of community-based supervision. Today we have drug courts, gun courts, domestic violence courts, mental health courts, boot camps, intensive supervision, residential treatment, and so on. We really do not have enough research on how effective the supervision is of offenders under different programs. Using Albert Robert's work entitled "Correctional Counseling and Treatment" we will take a look at existing literature on programs and supervision, we will identify different theoretical frameworks for new models for offender supervision, and describe a model of behavioral management for offenderscorrectional counseling and rehabilitation within the prison system that uses engagement, early change, sustained change, and reinforcers over a period of 18 months to give us the end result we hope will be realized - an offender who will not reoffend.

    Changing the Landscape of Behavioral Health Technology

    in Psychology

    everythingEHR is always on the hunt for innovative technology that aids our Behavioral Health providers.  Our article on Spiritually Integrated Therapy was found by Next Step Solutions, Inc. After reading our other articles on why we care so much about this sector of healthcare, Next Step picked up the phone and made a connection with our CEO, Kristin Walker.  


    A visit to their corporate office in Michigan last year was yet another stop on our 2014 journey across the United States visiting EHR vendors and Behavioral Health practices.  Kristin had the opportunity to meet everyone on the team and see what a software organization does that is heavy on development and light on marketing agendas.  It was certainly a pleasure.  


    NextStep™ has developed a digital pen system and embedded artificial intelligence into their EHR.  Sounds unbelievable right?  A science fiction movie, maybe?  We saw it action at their office and while we visited several of their clients.  NextStep™ has clients across the United States using their award-winning software for behavioral health private practices, research clinics, residential programs, outpatient agencies and state hospitals.  It was a pleasure to sit down with Dr. Darrin Hanna and David Ballenberger, MSW to discuss their product, their organization, and what the future holds for behavioral health technology.

    Acceptable Carnality: Why behavioral accountability is lost in the church

    in Christianity

    Everyone has lapses in judgment and moral failings that dot their religious existence. For centuries, believers lacked the power to be transparent about personal struggles. The ongoing verbal assualts between Supt. Earl Carter and Bishop Charles Blake in the COGIC faith, and Pastor Leandria Johnson's persicope misadventures are only a couple of the public examples of the dissonance of holiness and carnality in the church. What can be done when pastors and church leaders breach their call to sanctification and holiness? How can the ideas of sanctification and holiness be promoted in ways that are empowering and not condemning?
