2021 ECMH CoP - CPP Treatment Planning For Young Children Workshop
Thursday, September 30, 2021 - 09:30 to 12:30
Virtual Training – Zoom Video Conferencing
Registration for this event closes September 29, 2021. All times listed are Central.
This intensive workshop is for those who have a license to practice mental health and are trained in Child-Parent Psychotherapy.
Child Parent Psychotherapy is a deeply relational model that sometimes can seem at odds with the need to write measurable goals and objectives as required by agencies, Medicaid and other payment sources. How do we know that a parent child relationship is changing, or if it isn’t? What are we aiming for in our treatment, and how do we know if we are being successful? How do we reconcile the differences in what caregivers want from treatment, and what case professionals and pay sources want?
A good treatment plan works like a map to help you navigate the complexities of CPP treatment. In this workshop you will learn how to write clear and specific outcomes, goals and objectives for relational change, select interventions that will get us to those goals, and track child and parent progress over time. But most importantly, you will learn how to get your treatment in clear focus from the start. We will learn how critical it is to see treatment planning as an opportunity to engage caregivers. We will use all the elements of the CPP Foundation Stage to create a clear direction for treatment.
We invite you to come to this training with a dilemma. Bring one of your cases in which treatment planning has been a challenge. You will have an opportunity to apply these ideas to your own case.
