Rogers Memorial Hospital recently extended a special invitation to educational consultants for an opportunity to learn more about the many nationally recognized programs benefitting children and adolescents at Rogers. As a result, 16 educational consultants from the U.S. and Canada visited the Rogers’ campus on May 21-22, 2012. Starting with a presentation by Mick Van Every, MSW/CTRS, Experiential Therapy Manager, the first day continued with Medical Directors at Rogers Memorial Hospital – Oconomowoc: a message by Peter Lake, MD, and a roundtable discussion led by Jerry Halverson, MD, FAPA. In the afternoon, the group participated in a shuttle tour of Rogers’ campus, including the Herrington Recovery Center, Eating Disorder Center, Child Center, Child & Adolescent Centers, and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Center. On the second day, Todd Campbell, PhD, presented “Motivational Interviewing: Rolling with Resistance” and – as a bonus – the group attended the 8th Annual Women’s Gathering. The two-day event was created just for educational consultants, who serve families of students experiencing difficulty in school, and highlighted not only the programs at Rogers Memorial Hospital but also featured valuable information they can share with their clients. Currently, referrals from educational consultants across the globe account for 14 percent of the patients who come to the Child & Adolescent Centers.
Rogers is a comprehensive psychiatric hospital, nationally recognized for specialty residential treatment programs for eating disorders, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders for children, teens and adults.
