It is has been well documented that our nation has been experiencing several years of an ever growing chiasm between the demand for child mental health services and the availability of specialized, pediatric, mental health providers and programs. There is a burgeoning need for creative, cost effective and readily deployable, evidence-based protocols for treating youth with mental illness, and their families. This workshop will demonstrate parent and psychosocial skills training techniques deployed within an evidence-based, manualized, group therapy service delivery model, which is sustainable in a managed care environment, applicable across a broad patient population, as well as effective in several key, outcome domains. The parent and psychosocial skills training modules will be presented in an interactive and experiential format, following a method of Socratic teaching and structured exercises. The training will be supplemented by a book, which describes the treatment protocols.
The two-day workshop would include two trainers simultaneously running 2 parallel trainings that are repeated over two consecutive days. One training track would focus on the parent training modular curricula, while the other would teach the psychosocial skills training modular curricula for children. Workshop participants would be divided into two groups. Both groups would receive training on the parent and child tracks, but in reversed order.
