INDIAN HEALTH CARE RESOURCE CENTER

Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. (IHCRC) is a nonprofit comprehensive health care facility serving the Tulsa area American Indian community. The mission of IHCRC is to provide quality, comprehensive health care to Tulsa area American Indian people in a culturally sensitive manner that promotes good health, well-being, and harmony. IHCRC provides medical, health and wellness education, dental, optometry, substance abuse, pharmacy, and behavioral health services. IHCRC serves individuals across the life span with economically diverse backgrounds. Almost 20,000 American Indian people seek the services of IHCRC each year.

IHCRC has a multidisciplinary behavioral health department comprised of psychologists, psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and substance abuse counselors. The behavioral health department of IHCRC provides comprehensive outpatient services utilizing evidenced-based practices. Services include clinical interviews, diagnostic assessments, substance abuse treatment, medication management, and therapy with individuals, families, couples.

IHCRC provides three full-time placements for interns. The internship is focused on training interns to provide behavioral health services in an interdisciplinary medical facility while emphasizing cultural competency in providing service in American Indian communities. Interns are valued members of our multidisciplinary clinic and work collaboratively with a variety of mental health and medical professionals.

The general responsibilities of the interns include conducting psychological assessment; consulting with medical providers; and providing individual, family, and group therapy with children, adolescents, and adults. Psychological assessment is a core component of the training, and interns have an opportunity to conduct a variety of assessments. The most common assessments are child neuro-developmental, learning disability, autism, parenting capacity, diagnostic clarification, ADHD, and dementia screenings. Interns are encouraged to form new groups as needed to address patient needs and intern interests. They work closely with our medical department, with opportunities for medical consultation and observation of psychiatric appointments. They spend several hours per week embedded in medical - conducting screenings and providing brief interventions to patients during medical appointments. They are engaged in periodic consultation with our Systems of Care program, which provides community-based wrap-around services to children and adolescents experiencing behavioral or emotional difficulties. Interns participate in community activities, including attending the Tulsa Indian Community Advisory Team meetings and annual powwow planning meetings. They have opportunities to be involved in multiple community events, including volunteering at the annual powwow, attending stomp dances, observing youth drum group practices, chaperoning youth dances, and assisting with events for families in the community.
