    Yaminette Diaz-Linhart
  • Yaminette Diaz-Linhart, LCSW, MPH, was the recipient of the 2018 BUSSW Alumni Association’s Outstanding Contributions to the Field of Social Work. Her path has taken her from a MSW/MPH dual degree student to program director for BMC’s Center for Family Navigation in Pediatrics to her current role as a health policy research scholar in the doctoral program at Brandeis University. Yaminette was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in Connecticut. She moved to western Massachusetts to attend Mount Holyoke College.
    Yaminette’s work has focused on improving child and family outcomes through mental health promotion and depression prevention for parents. Yaminette has been a member of NASW-MA since 2010 and holds a Master of Social Work and a Master of Public Health from Boston University School of Social Work and School of Public Health. She is committed to developing policy level strategies that help promote mental health for families through the life course.
    Yaminette believes that in order to move toward health equity and human sustainability, healthcare organizations will need to include people in roles such as community health workers, patient navigators, and social workers to help meet the social and health needs of patients. Her research explores how organizations manage these “nontraditional” boundary spanner roles and how work design and employee management practices may impact patient outcomes. She believes that addressing the current gap in managing these roles is crucial for employee health and wellbeing, and as a result for patients.
    Yaminette’s unique perspective straddles multiple identities, including her professional work as a public health social worker, and positions her well to think about building a Culture of Health through cross-sector collaborations in the management field.

About this Webinar

The fast pace and pressures experienced in public health often demand short term and immediate actions without thoughtful consideration of the long-term effects. When people are able to look at situations from a bigger picture, systems view, it allows them to make higher quality decisions and minimizes unintended consequences. One of the most significant contributions to building this capacity is Systems Thinking.

Systems Thinking is a practical, results-oriented approach for better understanding the underlying causes of complex issues. This webinar will introduce systems thinking tools and present two recent examples of public health teams who have engaged with systems thinking tools and received coaching, with very positive results!

  • Example 1: one of of three teams coached from the Vermont Department of Health that focused on reducing the case processing backlog in their Cancer Registry Department
  • Example 2: one of five teams coached from NNPHI's Strategic Scholars Program that focused on the challenges local health departments have in prioritizing and integrating  behavioral health services


What you'll learn

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define systems thinking
  • Explain the Iceberg Model and Ladder of Inference
  • Give an example of an improvement by a public health team using systems thinking coaching

About this Webinar

The series of three Webinars will provide a progressive look at the art of persuasion in a health conversation. As individuals, we form habits of communication and methods to attempt to influence others. The exploration will include examining beliefs and interpretations of information that impact how we communicate with our clients about their health. It becomes a challenge when evidence-based information is not convincing. This series will look at methods to navigate through emerging and competing influences that impact how patients send and receive information. By engaging others in meaningful conversations about their health we have a chance to influence.

What you'll learn

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Name two communication mistakes to avoid when talking with clients or communities about behavior change.
  • Identify two methods to apply to a health conversation to create a meaningful experience for the client or community.
  • Differentiate between ineffective and effective persuasion strategies in health discussions.
