The ISU Department of Counseling, in anticipation of state requirements for state
certification for PSR workers, will be offering in the near future the following PSR

Individuals seeking certification as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Specialist must meet
the State of Idaho’s educational requirements. These requirements are: 1) at least a
bachelor’s degree in behavioral science, education, or medicine from a nationally
accredited university, and 2) at least twenty-one (21) semester credit hours (or quarter
hour equivalent) in human service fields such as psychology, social work, special
education, counseling or psychosocial rehabilitation. (IDAPA 16.10.131)

On-line testing will be conducted by the Idaho Counseling Association and they will issue
the certification. All 60 contact hours must be attended. The 60 hours are set up as ten,
six hour days. The ten days are not sequential, each day is independent so participants
can come and go as one’s individual schedule permits. The ten Saturday sequence will
begin with session one and proceed through each session to ten. At that point the
sessions will begin again with session one.

CLINICAL PSYCHOPHARMACOLOGY UPDATE FOR 2008
        BASED ON THE ASCP CURRICULUM
This year’s edition will present new trends in the treatment of psychiatric illness, with an
emphasis on non-psychiatric medical illness which complicates the treatment of psychiat-
ric illness. Recently, the NIMH attempted to promote a study of elderly schizophrenic
clients, in order to identify the consequences of treatment versus non-treatment of this
illness. The study was called off, however, for one major reason—there were basically no
elderly schizophrenics to enroll! This leads one to conclude that this severe mental illness
is far more than a disorder of thinking, but that every aspect of one’s life and environment
is adversely affected by this disorder.

In light of this, our class will highlight medical illnesses that complicate psychiatric care—
and which often go untreated. Paramount is the epidemic of obesity, insulin resistance
and diabetes that affects our clients and society at large.

We shall also cover advances in treatment in mental health and present rational schema
for the treatment of the mental illnesses that so beset our treatment populations. Overall
topics will include:
Day 1
 Introduction to psychopharmacology: Definitions, history and trends
 The physiology of stress
 The physiology of mental illness—the mind, brain, body connections
 Common medical illnesses that complicate psychiatric care
 Non-prescription somatic treatments: The holistic toolbox
 Narcotic addiction revisited: Buprenorphine for opiate addiction
 Novel agents on the near horizon: Glutamate, and more antidepressants
 The long-term treatment of mental illnesses: A discussion involving CATIE and STAR-D
 The ethics of psychopharmacology

Day 2
 Neurobiology of action mechanisms: A brief summary
 The management of mood disorders: Indications for antidepressants
 Mood stabilization: Lithium and anticonvulsants
 Brave new world: Devices in the treatment of mood disorder
 The STEP-BD trial: Whither the treatment of bipolar disorder
 Novel agents
 Compliance optimization
 Medication risk management

     MEDICAL AND PSYCHOSOCIAL ISSUES IN TREATMENT
DAY 1: Eating Disorders: Psychosocial Issues and Treatment
A comprehensive overview of eating disorder issues, framed to answer the following key
questions: How many people in the U.S. have eating disorders and why are they on the
rise? How do healthcare professionals detect, assess, and diagnose eating disorders,
when they are shrouded in secrecy? What causes eating disorders? What types of
evidence-based treatment are recommended for patients of differing severity, how do
professionals use these treatment methods, and what is the prognosis for patients
suffering from eating disorders? What special issues exist in the professional relationship
with eating disorder patients, and what is the role of family dynamics and family therapy in
treating eating disorders? Physicians will provide tools, assignments, and handouts that
professionals can use in their work with eating disorder patients.

DAY 2: Eating Disorders: Medical, Nutritional, and Psychiatric Issues
A thorough overview of the medical, nutritional, and psychiatric issues in assessing and
treating eating disorder patients. This includes a review of eating disorders’ medical
complications, such as identification and evaluation techniques, laboratory and x-ray tests,
the pathophysiology of malnutrition, and the medical risks of refeeding. The workshop
continues with details on the nutritional sequelae of eating disorders, and state-of-the-art
nutritional rehabilitation/refeeding of the eating disorder patient. The presenters then
discuss psychopharmacologic agents and the unique prescribing challenges psychiatrists
face when working with patients with co-occurring disorders. A discussion of the
importance of interdisciplinary team collaboration with eating disorder patients will round
out the presentation.

 ETHICAL AND LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS IN COUNSELING
CLIENTS WHO MAY BE AT RISK FOR SUICIDE OR VIOLENCE
    AND AVOIDING UNWANTED COURT APPEARANCES

One of the most challenging tasks of mental health professionals is to identify clients who
may be at risk for suicide or violence and then to manage such clients in a way that respects
their privacy rights, ensures they receive the mental health services they need, and is in
compliance with ethical and legal requirements. A second major challenge for contemporary
counselors is to avoid unwanted court appearances. Legal proceedings and court appear-
ances often demand that mental health professionals protect their clients’ privacy to the de-
gree possible, yet sometimes require that the private information of clients be disclosed.

             MANAGING A MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC
                   (PRIVATE AND PUBLIC)
Day 1: Each year, in the United States, Healthcare insurers process over 5 billion claims
for payment. Healthcare in America is an explosive industry accounting for the top 3
producers in gross national product (and income), and outside of a few industrial sectors,
out paces all other industries in terms of its projected growth.
Grouped within the healthcare sector known as Health Information Management (HIM),
health information technicians (the group to which coders and billers belong) are projected
to be one of the 20th fastest growing occupations in the U.S. Needless to say, there is
huge demand and need for medical billers and certified coders. In this course you will
learn all about medical billing and how it can make or break your business.
OVERVIEW a) Education and training, b) Practice management how important is it?
c) Distinction between medical billers and certified coders
MANAGING YOUR PRACTICE a) Getting a good flow in your office, b) Safeguards
against embezzlement, c) Job descriptions and cross training, d) Equipment (phone
systems etc.), e) Electronic medical records
PATIENT INFORMATION a) Gathering appropriate information from the referral source,
b) Gathering appropriate information from the patient, c) Calling to verify coverage and
benefits, d) Pre-authorizations (do you need one?) e) Working as a TEAM – before it gets
to billing, f) HIPAA
BILLING THE VISIT a) Documentation guidelines (1995 vs 1997), b) Critical documenta-
tion – if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen and can’t be billed!! c) Paper/audit trails,
d) Medical billing software, e) Post payment audits
DIFFERENT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCES To participate or not to participate –
that is the question! a) Fee for service, b) Managed care, c) PPOs (Preferred Provider
Organization), d) POS (Point of Service), e) HMO (Health Management Organizations),
f) Medicare (regular or HMO style)
MENTAL HEALTH BILLLING – a world all its own
Day 2: Graduate mental health counselors end up in solo or group private practice with
little or no experience of the requirements and the dangers of managing their practice.
Management of private practices ranges from not only the skills of counseling but to
finding the client as well as managing the financial aspect of our very existence. This class
is intended to outline some of the joys and risks of being an entrepreneur and on ways of
navigating this often-treacherous path of dealing with insurance companies and being
paid.
