This training provides an overview of several evidence-based practices for mental health.
The sheer number of new methods and practices in mental health can be overwhelming. You don’t need to be an expert, but it helps to know some of the key features. This presentation, delivered by members of the Project Harmony Clinical Team, offers a survey of evidence-based practices in mental health and is designed for the professional who refers children to services. You will learn the questions that a well-informed advocate needs to ask to find the right mental health services and practitioner for a child.
The evidence-based practices reviewed in Part I include: AFCBT (Alternatives for Families CBT), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy); MI (Motivational Interviewing); PCIT and TCIT (Parent-Child/Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy or Training); Circle of Security Parenting (COS-P) and Expressive Arts Therapy.
Please attend Part II to learn about the following trauma focused interventions: CPP (Child Parent Psychotherapy), TFCBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), CFTSI (Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention); and CBITS (Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma in Schools).
