Cognitive Behavioral Approaches

Predominantly a knowledge transfer, this webcast aims to familiarize participants with the concepts and key elements of this evidence-based practice to enhance staff efficacy in helping their clients successfully achieve desired outcomes, prevent recidivism and minimize the propensity for relapse.

 

Case Management: Core Skills for Evidence-Based Approaches

During this webcast participants will be in a position to learn to differentiate traditional ineffective deficit-centered practices from evidence-based and strength-centered approaches that the field has moved to. They will learn to help their clients achieve desirable outcomes by promoting interventions which link individuals seamlessly to appropriate resources.

 

Case Management For Community Corrections

The program examines the way in which case-management has been a natural part of community corrections and reentry, probation, parole and other service provider staffs supervising clients at various stages of transitioning within institutions and outside in community.

 

Substance Abuse Treatment & Management

This webcast provides instruction to staff who work with substance abusing clients. It examines the pharmacology of typical substances and the evidence-based methods practitioners must apply to achieve desired outcomes. The program also examines co-occurring disorders and how they serve to further complicate work with clients.

 

Employee Performance Appraisals

Success and sustainability of any agency is driven by how the management team navigates the employee performance review process. What goes on before, during and after this important event yields benefits which go straight to the bottom line. Yet the process is one many well-meaning managers and supervisors avoid, or at best do not look forward to. Ultimately the appraisal "thrown together" is one the manager themselves would not want to receive.  This webinar will help participants learn methods to perform this important function as a seamless part of their day to day activities and drive agency performance to levels never before thought possible.

 

Motivational Interviewing

Although best taught and assimilated through experiential exercises, this webcast aims to teach foundational concepts involved in the method of MI. The program will help staff learn how to influence clients into considering making durable behavioral changes through intrinsic motivation.  In addition they will be in a position to recognize that clients address change issues at different levels of readiness which they as practitioners must learn to appreciate and handle with confidence in a way that is both assistive and collaborative.

 

Managing Employee Performance

This training is designed for new supervisors and managers or those who have little or no formal employee management training. It is relevant for those who wish to acquire fundamental skills for achieving desired results with and through others.  Participants will be in a position to gain an understanding of key management concepts and fundamentals they can put to work immediately to enhance theirs and their team's performance.

 

Ethics

This program discusses the fundamental ethical issues and dilemmas practitioners face in the field.  We will discuss the ethical codes that apply to working with behavioral and mental health clients and evaluate scenarios that allow participants to explore the grey areas and the ethical decision making procedures.

 

Person Centered Planning

Person Centered Planning is a formalized process in which the individual receiving supports and services is helped to lead the process of developing a plan of service. An evidence-based and strength centered practice, its is applicable for prevention and treatment settings.

 

Suicides Detection & Prevention

How can you tell someone is suicidal?  When you do what are appropriate steps to take to prevent it?  This is a two hour webinar to assist counselors (including substance abuse counselors) build skills for suicide prevention.

 

Writing Effective Stage-Matched Service & Treatment Plans

This is a webinar that increases the skills of practitioners in applying strength-based, recovery-oriented treatment in their work with clients and in their documentation. The workshop will give clarity to what is a deficit-based versus a strength-based approach as well as greatly increase individual practitioner skills for writing collaborative, recovery-oriented treatment plans that actually reflect the activities of the individual and the assistive counselor (team).

 

Trauma Informed Care

This training is intended to help the practitioner develop skills for assessing the impact of trauma on functioning and ability to benefit from treatment. Implementing a trauma-informed care program expresses a human service program's intention to assess and potentially modify its organization, management, and service delivery system to include a basic understanding of how trauma affects the life of an individual seeking services.
