The development of early onset psychosis intervention programs has gained quick momentum in communities throughout the U.S. As demonstrated by studies from NIMH, SAMHSA, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, health care practitioners’ ability to provide thorough and effective early onset services can significantly reduce a young person’s chance of experiencing long-term disability status as a result of untreated or mistreated mental illness. To assist organizations seeking to or in the process of implementing evidence-based interventions for the treatment of psychosis, the National Council has teamed up with Senior Vice President for Behavioral Health Services at North Shore-LIJ Health System, Dr. John Kane — one of the premier national thought leaders around the academic, research and clinical programming for psychotic disorders. This webinar will examine the processes and organizational enhancement strategies to measure quality and client improvement. Join us for this webinar to learn more about service line adjustments, particularly around staff training and organizational procedures, to effectively serve youth at risk of developing psychosis.
According to the largest ever investigation of associations between childhood maltreatment and later-life health and well-being conducted by the CDC, almost two-thirds of cases examined reported at least one adverse childhood experience of physical or sexual abuse, neglect, or family dysfunction, and more than one of five reported three or more such experiences. The good news is that trauma is treatable — tune into this webinar to learn about the many evidence-based models and promising organizational practices designed for specific populations, types of trauma, caring for children, and how to bring trauma-informed care to scale across service systems.
This workshop will provide parents with information about the changes that occur to every child, with or without a disability, during adolescence and puberty. Participants will feel more comfortable and confident as they help their youth navigate this important transition from childhood to adulthood.
