Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
March 21st to 25th, 2018
Fresno County, CA
The above course is across five days and it has an overall aim of introducing the agency staff to CBT informed Techniques for Psychosis and creating a framework where these techniques can be implemented with their current caseload.
The five days have been split so that the training can be tailored to different skill groups with each day having defined objectives for the attendees that day. The Monday workshops will be for the full group and will focus on launching the week, managing expectations across the group and the training and introducing the group to concept of CBT informed Techniques for Psychosis and how they can be implemented within their day to day clinical practice.
The Tuesday and Wednesday workshops are going to focus on three key delivery phases and seven techniques and will be aimed at unlicensed staff (e.g. case managers) from PSS, CMHS and UMHC. During these two days the delegates will learn about the seven techniques and how they fit within the three key delivery phases, they will also have an opportunity to role play within a safe environment.
On Thursday there will be a Higher Level Training and this will be for licensed Mental Health Clinicians and Clinical Supervisors. During the day the delegates will learn how to formulate, symptom manage and work with patient beliefs, they will also have an opportunity to role play within a safe environment.
Friday will be the final day of the training week and will be again for the full group. The day will focus on an overview of the week, a revision of techniques and more importantly building in actions so that these techniques can be incorporated into everyday clinical practice. There will be a focus on sustainability and the group will be informed of the planned Skype support groups and the support they will receive whilst they implement the techniques.
