Wayne Skinner Award Winners Announced!
Wayne Skinner Award for Fostering Growth and Inspiration Through Teaching
We kicked off Monday of Education Achieve Week with a smiling set of award winners and nominees. They were nominated by their peers for teaching and education excellence within CAMH and in the community, and Wayne Skinner gave a keynote presentation to talk about the importance of teaching, learning and care in mental health and addictions.
Carmen Wiebe, MD, FRCPC
Staff psychiatrist in the Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic at CAMH
Dr. Carmen Wiebe works with clients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), teaches Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). She has been an advocate for clients and new teaching models working with BPD. Here is an excerpt from the nomination, which gave a glowing rendition of Carmen teaching and modeling ‘the patient as teacher:’
“The impact of Dr. Wiebe’s work is even more powerful given that she co-teaches with former clients of the BPD clinic, because significant numbers of health care professionals have deeply stigmatized views of patients with Borderline Personality Disorder.”
Motivational Interviewing Faculty Team
The Motivational Interviewing team: Tim Godden, Brian Slegers, Alexandra Andric, Peter Selby, Carolynne Cooper, Stephanie Cohen, Rosa Dragonetti, Anu Goodman, Natalie Quick, Julie Henderson, Kam Balchand, Sandra Cushing, Evelyn Neilas, Yarissa Herman, Wayne Skinner
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is used in training of residents, current clinicians in and outside of CAMH. The first motivational interviewing clinic was started in 2013, and has grown over the last two years.
The team’s work has shifted the concept of ’motivation for change’ toward a view that empowers clinicians to elicit change talk from the patient’s perspective and needs. As a result of the MI team at CAMH, motivational interviewing is now used in across the hospital in a wide variety of programs and services.
To all the nominees, congrats!
