Proposed Legislation to Grant Prescriptive Authority to Psychologists with Advanced and Specialized Training in Clinical Psychopharmacology

Posted: March 24, 2021

BACKGROUND
Colorado is in a serious mental health crisis, with a high prevalence of mental health issues in Coloradans and a significant shortage of mental health professionals statewide. For example, nationally, Colorado ranks third for lowest access to mental health services, has the second highest percentage of adults with substance use disorder, and has the third-highest percentage of adults contemplating suicide. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of mental health issues in Coloradans have increased, with nearly 50% of Coloradans experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression, and a more than a 50% increase in Coloradans calling or texting a crisis hotline.

This six-hour remote training will enable clinicians to develop competence in CBT-I using an empirically and clinically validated CBT-I protocol. It is based on three decades of research and clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center and a landmark federally-funded study conducted at Harvard Medical School by Gregg D. Jacobs, Ph.D. and colleagues demonstrating that the same CBT-I protocol was more effective than Ambien for insomnia (Jacobs, GD, et al. Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Pharmacotherapy for Insomnia: A Randomized Controlled Trial and Direct Comparison. Archives of Internal Medicine, 2004, 164: 1888-96).

As Psychologists, we are frequently asked to write emotional support animal (ESA) letters so that our patients can travel with or live with an animal that would otherwise be prohibited. This presentation will explore the legal considerations when writing an ESA letter and the research about if there is benefit of an ESA. You will also learn the differences between an ESA and service animal.
