Dr. Christine Callahan gave a talk on "Clients Struggling with Mental Health/Trauma Histories" at the CFPB Financial Coaching Conference in Louisville, KY, on November 14-15.  This talk provided an overview of many of the diagnoses, issues, and stressors with which clients who have mental health and/or trauma histories are coping, and it also covered what financial coaches and others working within the financial arena need to know about intervention and referral strategies, and how providers in mental health and finance can work together across discipline to best assist clients and families.  Dr. Callahan also joined with another colleague to give a talk on "Self-Care When Managing a Caseload" at the same conference.

Dr. Christine Callahan, research faculty at the FSWI, presented a talk on May 6, 2016, at the annual conference of the Association of Oncology Social Work.  The title of the talk was "The Burden on Social Workers When Patients and Families Experience Financial Stress" and it stemmed from results from a project with the SSW's Dr. John Cagle (principal investigator) on financial burden at the end of life (funded by a UMB Pilot and Exploratory Interdisciplinary Research [IDR grant]).  Dr. Callahan is study coordinator on this research project.
