FEBRUARY 11 presented by Chris Rogers, MD 

Have you ever wished you had tools to help your patients outside the treatment setting? Do you want to help build a mental health system that is more effective and equitable? Do you want to advocate for your patients but don't know how? Then join us Thursday, February 11 at 6:30pm.

For this month's CCAPS Chat, we are going to shake things up a little and offer an Advocacy Workshop with Past President, Chris Rogers. Chris is a member of the AACAP Advocacy Committee which offered this training to all AACAP members in September 2020. For those who missed it we will share highlights from the recorded presentation featuring AACAP President Gabrielle Carlson, AACAP Assembly Chair Melvin Oatis and Advocacy Committee Co-Chairs Deb Koss and Karen Pierce. Afterwards we will review basic tenets of effective advocacy including hands on training of how providers can communicate effectively with policy makers.

This should be a fun, informal evening that is perfect for trainees, early career docs or seasoned veterans looking to change how they work towards change for the kids of Colorado. Hope to see you all there!

 MARCH 11 with guest speaker Robert Freedman, MD and facilitated by Matt Pesko, MD

Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 11 at 6:30 for another great CCAPS Chat featuring a review of the new book Hidden Valley Road by Robert Kolker with special guest conversation and Q+A from our esteemed general psychiatry colleague Dr. Robert Freedman, whose developmental research was featured in this book. The book follows a Colorado family, with six of twelve siblings eventually diagnosed and treated for schizophrenia, from the 1950s onward. It is a poignant narrative that illustrates the changing practice of psychiatry over time, and can inform how we treat children and families currently. Excerpts from the book will be forthcoming for participants in the Chat to have access to some materials ahead of time for reflection and conversation.

For those who wish to purchase the entire book or audiobook, it can be found here and elsewhere:
