National Institutes of Health Loan Repayment Programs

Presenters: 
Dr. Ericka Boone
Ericka Boone, Ph.D. is the Director of the NIH Division of Loan Repayment. In this role, Dr. Boone is responsible for administering and providing leadership for the NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs) as well as representing NIH on matters related to the operations, policy development and evaluation of the LRPs. Prior to this position, Dr. Boone served as a Health Scientist Administrator in the Office of Science Policy and Communications at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) where she developed and targeted science-based publications, outreach initiatives and other activities to educate a variety of audiences about the science of drug use, abuse and addiction. Before coming to NIH, Dr. Boone conducted research at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Emory University. Dr. Boone’s academic background includes a B.A. in Biology from Talladega College and a Ph.D. in Biobehavioral Health from The Pennsylvania State University.

Matthew Lockhart
Matthew Lockhart, M.B.A. is a Program Analyst in the NIH Division of Loan Repayment (DLR), where he serves as an advisor to the DLR Director on issues related to loan repayment policies, guidelines, and regulations. Prior to his current tenure at the NIH, Mr. Lockhart spent five years as a Senior Policy Specialist in the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (a USDA agency) where he played the lead role in developing the policy and regulatory underpinning of the Veterinary Medical Loan Repayment Program, a program dedicated to the task of filling priority shortage areas serving underserved species of food animals. Mr. Lockhart received his B.A. in Mathematics from Gallaudet University and his M.B.A. in Organizational Management from the University of Maryland, College Park.

Overview:
Dr. Ericka Boone and Matthew Lockhart will discuss loan repayment opportunities available to medical other health professionals. The presentation will cover a comprehensive overview of the NIH Loan Repayment Programs (LRPs). The purpose of the LRPs is to attract and retain promising early-stage investigators in research careers by helping them to repay their student loans. High levels of student loan debt – amassed during long periods of education and clinical training – are forcing some newly-trained scientists to abandon productive research careers for higher paying private sector or private practice professions. The LRPs counteract that financial pressure by repaying up to $70,000 in educational debt over two years in return for a commitment to conduct research in NIH mission-critical areas.

Overview:
Sleep and circadian problems are among the most prevalent problems, undermining our emotional functioning, health, cognition, and contributing to behavioral problems. Much research on sleep and circadian problems has been disorder-focused; however, real life sleep and circadian problems are not so neatly categorized. Insomnia often overlaps with hypersomnia, delayed sleep phase and irregular sleep-wake schedules, an observation that motivated us to develop the Transdiagnostic Sleep and Circadian Intervention (TranS-C). The goal of TranS-C is to provide a treatment approach for a variety of sleep problems comorbid with a variety of psychological and physical disorders, and that can be used confidently by a variety of mental health professionals. TranS-C combines CBT-I (e.g., Morin et al., 2006) with elements from existing evidence-based treatments: Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (Frank et al., 2005), chronotherapy (Wirz-Justice et al. 2009) and Motivational Enhancement (Miller & Rollnick, 2012). TranS-C is a modular approach to reversing and maintaining psychosocial, behavioral and cognitive processes via 4 cross-cutting modules, 4 core modules and 7 optional modules. The four Cross Cutting Modules are: case formulation; education; behavior change and motivation; goal setting. The four Core Modules are: establishing regular sleep-wake times including learning a wind-down and wake-up routine; improving daytime functioning; correcting unhelpful sleep-related beliefs; and maintenance of behavior change. The Optional Modules are: improving sleep efficiency; reducing time in bed; dealing with delayed or advanced phase; reducing sleep-related worry/vigilance; promoting compliance with CPAP/exposure therapy for claustrophobic reactions to CPAP; negotiating sleep in a complicated environment and reducing nightmares.

Objectives:

  1. Summarize the rationale for and theoretical underpinnings of TranS-C
  2. Utilize/apply the cross-cutting modules of TranS-C
  3. Utilize/apply the core modules of TranS-C
  4. Obtain knowledge as to the availability of the optional modules of TranS-C

Clinician Wellness: Mindfully Building Resiliency Day by Day

Presenter:  Dr. Patricia J. Robinson, PhD, of Mountainview Consulting Group, is recognized as a pioneer researcher in the field of primary care behavioral health and a master clinician in Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She trains internationally and consults with health care systems about initiation and expansion of integrated services. She is the author of over 150 publications, including Behavioral Consultation and Primary Care, 2nd (2015), Brief Interventions for Radical Change (2012), and Real Behavior Change in Primary Care (2010).

Overview:
This webinar is intended for all audience levels, from students to advanced professionals. The webinar describes use of mindfulness and value-based behavior change planning to enhance resilience at work and in “the rest-of-life”. It will provide a brief introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and an adapted version of ACT, known as fACT. Participants will learn about tools to assist them with identifying sources of and magnitude of stressors in their lives and for measuring their current level of psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility is the result of skills that promote resilience in encountering the stresses of work and life mindfully and persisting in the pursuit of chosen meaningful life directions. Participants will be guided through worksheets to assist the with development of a plan to enhance resiliency.
The recommended approach has been used with a variety of workers in Great Britain and found to be associated with greater job satisfaction, a higher sense of job control, and better retention of workers. The approach is used increasingly in the United States in primary care settings, where behavioral health providers and medical providers work together in providing team-based care.

Objectives:

  1. Describe sources and magnitude of stress and a way to assess level of psychological flexibility
  2. Name core processes that support psychological flexibility and clinician resilience
  3. PApply specific exercises for developing a written plan to grow and sustain resilience

New Approaches to Digital Mental Health

Presenter:  Dr. David Mohr
Dr. David Mohr is a Professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine, Northwestern University and the Director of the Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies. Dr. Mohr has won numerous awards and is a Fellow of the Society of Clinical Psychology, Division 12 of APA. His primary interest is developing and evaluating technology-assisted behavioral and psychological interventions. He is also interested in the relationship between stress, depression and inflammation, particularly in multiple sclerosis. Other areas of interest include development and evaluation of internet and telelcommunications assisted behavioral interventions; barriers to access to behavioral interventions; investigation of the effects of stress and depression on multiple sclerosis exacerbation and inflammation.

Overview:
Dr. Mohr will describe approaches in the design and evaluation of digital mental health interventions taken by the Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies. He will describe traditional approaches to digital mental health research, and why they have failed to produce real-world implementation. He will then describe a more recent approach, IntelliCare, which moves away from the “app for that” model to platforms that can more flexibly deploy tools to meet the needs and preferences of users. Finally, he will discuss personal sensing approaches that harness mobile phone sensor data to understand in real time behaviors and states related to depression.

Objectives:

  1. Be able to describe traditional methods of digital mental health intervention
  2. Be able to describe failure points in traditional digital mental health intervention research
  3. Be able to describe at least 1 potential solution to the problems of traditional digital mental health intervention
