Lorenz Clinic is excited to host Tai Mendenhall, PhD, LMFT, and his presentation, “We are in this Together: Helping Couples Navigate Contemporary Healthcare Systems as They Cope with Complex and Difficult Clinical Presentations,” for our August Grand Rounds continuing education event. Dr. Mendenhall will be in person at our Rosemount clinic for this presentation from 10 am-12 pm on Wednesday, August 10. The event will also be streamed live via Zoom for those who would like to attend virtually. Lorenz Clinic is excited to offer this event to clinicians in and around the Twin Cities area at no cost.

Participants can expect to learn how to:

  • Articulate the different missions of – and common providers (disciplines) working within – primary-, secondary-, and tertiary- “levels” of health care.
  • Describe the manners that clinical-, operational-, and financial- “worlds” of health care work collaboratively with – and sometimes against – each other.
  • Learn empirically-supported ways that therapists can help couples navigate healthcare systems as they cope with complex and difficult clinical presentations.
  • Understand theoretically-conceptualized strategies of interdisciplinary collaboration that can be advanced by therapists working across a wide range of care environments.

Clinicians who participate will be eligible for 2 Continuing Education Hours that have been approved by the following Minnesota Boards of Licensure:

  • Psychology
  • Social Work
  • Marriage and Family Therapy
  • Behavioral Health and Therapy
