Course Description

A presentation exploring case conceptualization and care planning for intervention within inter-disciplinary health care settings.

Chloe Westelmajer recently completed her PhD in Social Work at the University of Calgary, her research area of focus was with families involved in out-of-home/tertiary mental health care services defining "family functioning" within this unique context of mental health treatment. She has been very fortunate to work, for the last twenty years, within out-of-home mental health care contexts as a front-line youth and family counsellor, clinician, research supervisor, program manager, and associate director all within a large not-for-profit Children's Mental Health Center in Calgary, AB.

She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Masters of Creative Arts Therapies from Concordia University, and is a Registered Art Therapist with the American Art Therapy Credentials Board. In the fall of 2022, she moved with her husband to Victoria, BC where she is very grateful to be living and working on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish, Lekwungen, and WSANEC nations. She works in Vancouver Island Health - Mental Health and Substance Use as a Clinical Initiatives Lead with the Strategic Clinical Network. In this work, she is currently supporting Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Mental Health programs consisting of nurses, psychiatrists, physicians, clinicians, occupational therapists, Indigenous engagement workers, addictions workers, and mental health workers with practice standards integration and data evaluation. She is also a sessional instructor with the University of Calgary, Faculty of Social Work where she teaches two online classes: IPHE 501 – Interprofessional Practice in Mental Health and IPHE 503 – Interprofessional Practice in Addictions (and Co-Occurring Disorders).
