Speaker Bio:

Hal Pickett, Psy.D., LP, ABPP, Child and Adolescent Psychology Director, Client Services

Dr. Pickett has been practicing in the area of Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology for 24 years after a 15-year history of work as a Physical Therapist.  He is a frequent presenter on a variety of topic in mental health but one of his areas of passion is integrative care.  Dr. Pickett is the Director, Client Services for Headway Emotional Health Services, a large non-profit mental health provider in the Twin Cities
Dr. Pickett has worked in a variety of settings throughout his career as a Physical Therapist and Psychologist.  Through that lens, an area that to him seems omitted is a true concept of integrative care.  Dr. Pickett's clinical practice is limited at this time but most of his time is spent in forensics work and complex developmental trauma. As a Physical Therapist, he was certified in Sensory Integration and trained in the Neurodevelopmental Treatment model.  The model that most resonates with his clinical perspective is Dr. Bruce Perry's Neurosequential Assessment Model for complex trauma.


Learning Objectives:

1.  Understand the need for cross referral in mental health and Occupational Therapy.
2.  Understand the basics of complex developmental trauma and sensory processing disorders.
3.  Understand the need for Occupational Therapy in the treatment of mental health.
