Appendix A

Workshop Statement of Task

Training the Future Child Health Care Workforce to Improve Behavioral Health Outcomes for Children, Youth, and Families

This interactive public workshop will focus on the development and training of an integrated health care workforce that promotes family-focused behavioral health and well-being of children, youth, and families.

Panelists will address the needs for workforce development for the range of health care professions working with children, youth, and families, including pediatric medicine, family medicine, nursing, pediatric psychology and behavioral health, child psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, public health, social work, counseling, and parent and peer coaches. Current training protocols, programs, and core competencies will be examined in an effort to address the promotion of children’s behavioral health in an interdisciplinary, integrated, and multigenerational manner. The workshop will also address training and practice of professionals with behavioral competencies in subspecialty fields, specifically those working with children who have chronic illness, and training and certification for health care professionals who work with children in nontraditional health settings, including school, justice, and child welfare systems. Levers for leading change and innovation in training will be discussed.

A set of panel discussions, state-of-the-art reviews, and policy-focused presentations will address the following topics:

  • Improved content in training programs that incorporates promotion of behavioral health and well-being; training for multigeneration surveillance and intervention, including maternal health; and evidence-based practices

  • Goals and strategies for interprofessional training and integrated practice to meet current and future needs for the behavioral health of children and families
  • Attention to how funding and accreditation of training programs and certification of individuals may hinder, but more importantly drive, innovations in training an effective workforce
  • Training that affirms copromotion of behavioral health with parents
  • Training for collaboration with professionals in community settings, including schools, child care facilities, and juvenile justice
  • Current and future directions for research that examine outcomes of different training models
  • Opportunities to leverage other regional and national change processes to improve training

Increasing numbers of evidence-based interventions have proven effective in preventing and treating behavioral disorders in children. However, the adoption of these interventions in the health care system and other systems that affect the lives of children has been slow. Moreover, with few exceptions, current training in many fields that involve the behavioral health of children falls short of meeting the needs that exist. In general, this training fails to recognize that behavioral health disorders are among the largest challenges in child health and that changing cognitive, affective, and behavioral health outcomes for children will require new and more integrated forms of care at a population level in the United States.

To examine the need for workforce development across the range of health care professions working with children and families, as well as to identify innovative training models and levers to enhance training, the Forum on Promoting Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health held a workshop in November 2016. Workshop panelists and participants discussed the needs for workforce development across the range of health care professions working with children, youth, and families, and identified innovative training models and levers for change to enhance training. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
