Although behavioral health services are considered an essential healthcare benefit, access to services is often hindered, especially in frontier and rural areas. One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including substance use disorders treatment and recovery support, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver treatment services and what constitutes typical standards of care. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This two-part training series will first introduce technology-based interventions related to substance use disorders and then dig deeper into ethical considerations for professionals in the behavioral health field. Note: This is a full day training which includes 3 hours of Ethics training.

Although behavioral health services are considered an essential healthcare benefit, access to services can be hindered by resource factors such as time and available clinicians. One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including treatment, recovery support, and clinical supervision, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver these services. Clinical supervision has been shown to decrease staff turnover, improve morale, and lead to better patient outcomes by improving delivery of evidence-based care. Technology Based Clinical Supervision may be a way to overcome barriers to conducting supervision and enhance the clinical skills of the behavioral health treatment workforce. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This training will focus on developing the tools and training necessary to provide quality Technology Based Clinical Supervision as well as identify legal and ethical concerns in providing services in this way. Note: This training will satisfy the continuing education requirements for Clinical Supervision renewal.

Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS)...

03

April

The Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) is a flexible therapeutic framework in which patient and provider work together to assess the patient’s suicidal risk and use that information to plan and manage suicide-specific, “driver-oriented” treatment. It is a philosophy of clinical care that can be used for a wide range of suicidal patients across outpatient and inpatient treatment settings and in the context of various psychotherapies and treatment modalities. The clinician and patient engage in a highly interactive assessment process and the patient is actively involved in the development of their own treatment plan. Every session of CAMS intentionally utilizes the patient’s input about what is and is not working. All assessment work in CAMS is collaborative; we seek to have the patient be a “co-author” of their own treatment plan. This 1-day workshop will demonstrate the use of CAMS in live unscripted role-plays based on actual patients. Participants will practice what they have seen in role-play segments. By the end of this training participants should be prepared to begin using CAMS with suicidal patients. NOTE: It is highly recommended that each participant complete the online video training available on the CAMS-care website (https://cams-care.com/training/online-course) or read the CAMS manual available for purchase at https://cams-care.com/training/book prior to attending this in-person group workshop. Continuing Education Units are also available on the CAMS-care website for reading the book and taking the online video.
