On-Site Evidence-Based Training

Evidence-Based Support, Personalized For YOUR Complex Challenges

Your Challenge

Your evidence-based organization (and practitioners) encounter complex challenges daily, and properly preventing and resolving them is critical, not just to the success of your organization, but also the individual clients who are facing real-life challenges.

How well you do your job often determines the trajectory of your client’s lives. Done poorly, you could actually cause harm (or enable) them.

Is your organization structured in a way to maximize the impact of your practitioners? Are your practitioners equipped with the most sound direction on how to resolve complex human challenges?

When you’re simply chasing symptoms instead of attacking the cause you’re solving the short-term at the cost of the long-term. And, the stakes are high.

Get Equipped

Because you and your organization care, you institute evidence-based approaches and framework where both the practitioners and their clients can thrive in the short and long-term.

And the Joyfields Insitute is uniquely equipped to identify and fill in the gaps preventing your organization from excelling at the highest level. We offer solution which help you "adapt" what you already are doing - not start from scratch. We’ll dive into the trenches alongside you and your team while implementing in-person training and coaching guidance to support you where it's needed most.

Evidence-Based Training Modules

Our training programs are comprehensive and touch upon all the areas you’ll intentional and unexpectedly traverse. Here is a sample of our training repository.

The Evidence Based Practitioner: Core & Advance Skills for Working with Clients

This is the Masterclass for client facing practitioners. It is the standardized process for becoming a professional able to confidently and efficiently provide services and supports to clients through the application of a set of skills characterized as evidence-based "common elements". It teaches practitioners the essential skills they must possess, and use during client contact moments. In a world of countless “evidence-based” approaches, the aim of this course is to teach practitioners the critical collaborative and assistive skills they must possess for being evidence-based and strength-centered. These "common elements" in EBP demonstrate a shift from Diagnostic Driven, Clinically Driven, and Problem Driven Approaches to “Partnering” as an advanced skill. 

“Partnering” is a term that operationalizes a deeper knowledge and skillful application of sophisticated facilitation skills by the practitioner. In effect this advances the skills of the practitioner beyond expert knowledge of disorders and their remedies to a level of facilitation that impressively enables the person being served to benefit from the contact moment, in any method, program or practice. This is the core course for individual seeking certification as evidence-based practitioners.

The Certification Course
The Evidence Based Organization: Strategy & Tactics for Organizational Leadership & Development

This is the Masterclass for learning how organizations become evidence-based. The process lays a foundation for helping organization achieve enduring client outcomes and consistently reaching and exceeding the expectations of stakeholders and funding providers.  Agencies are encouraged to participate as teams to help accelerate the adoption and transition toward becoming an EBO.

A participant in this course is eligible to become Certified as an Evidence-Based Leader (CEBL).

This course also is required of leadership at organizations seeking Certification as Evidence-Based Organizations (CEBO).

Evidence-Based Case Management: Core Practices For Effective Outcomes

Co-occurring Mental Health & Substance Use disorders (Complex Care)

We have developed several training presentations on this but now use the SAMHSA Manualized Presentations.  Sometimes it is necessary to expand the detail on a part of this training which we are able to do.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT strategies arose from a recognition that typical skills-focused programs concentrate on a change to the exclusion of validation or acceptance, with the result that clients experience invalidation around their suffering as well as the difficulty or lack of readiness to make changes.  The particular value of DBT stems from it combining acceptance and change strategies together.

Family Engagement & Involvement in Community

This program applies approaches for Family Group, Conferencing, and Teaming at its core. Clients with supportive families and other adult caregivers achieve more durable sustainable outcomes. It teaches participants evidence-based and strength-centered methods for identifying, engaging, and involving with families in community.

Permanent Supportive Housing: Core Skills for Effective Case Management

H.I.R.E. - Helping Individuals Regain Employment

An Evidence-Based and Strength Centered Workforce Development Approach

The H.I.R.E program is designed to train workforce teams on evidence-based and strength centered employment focused approaches.  It is a comprehensive program to help staff obtain skills for helping their clients become gainfully employed even if they may have severe barriers. 

Comprehensive Workshop

H.I.R.E. directs focus to training clients for skills that are currently demanded by area employers.  It also works to expand the range of resources available for meeting the job search and job retention needs of clients.

The typical workforce system, by design of the federal government, includes a tiered approach to entering employment.  Core services or self-directed job search is through a universal access system open to the public.  This self-directed model may work for some, however, it presents immense challenges for the hardest to employ.

The Helping Individuals Regain Employment (H.I.R.E) program provides participants with supported and structured case managed navigation through the career exploration, job search, job placement, and job retention processes. For applicants or recipients who do not possess key skills to complete self-directed job search that lead to gainful employment a more intensive job, search and placement assistance services are needed.  Various funding sources must be identified to assist the job placement, TANF and Justice-Involved included.

If barriers are still present and need to be addressed with education or talent development, then referral to training services through various Workforce and Career Services remedies may be provided. This tiered approach is designed to assist those who are in need of more progressive support in their employment endeavors.

The H.I.R.E program is designed for working collaboratively with community partners to provide a one-stop environment for customers to address their employment needs.
