The Doctor of Behavioral Health (DBH) degree program educates integrated care professionals to best deliver whole-person healthcare to diverse communities and to improve access to quality healthcare for all people. Students are trained as doctoral level experts in integrated behavioral healthcare and are prepared to deliver patient-centered care, work in interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practice and quality improvement approaches, and utilize informatics in primary care and other medical settings.

The DBH program was designed to address the unmet educational need to prepare behavioral healthcare providers to practice in primary care and other medical settings as part of an interdisciplinary team. The 100% online, 60 credit DBH program was designed for busy professions, giving students the opportunity to complete their doctoral degree while balancing their personal lives, commitments, and professional practice, without the requirement of a residency or internship.

The “four questions” of the refocused psychotherapist [in the Biodyne Model] and the concept of the “onion/garlic” psychodynamic enabled me to not only conceptualize a case and plan treatment more rapidly, but to rise to a new level of professional confidence in meeting the behavioral care needs of my patients.
