TEAM LEADERS MUST HAVE ATTENDED DAY 1 IN LANSING ON 1/22/18
Trainer and Coaches: Mara Husband, MA, LLP, ACT Team Leader/Program Manager at Lincoln Behavioral Services
Elaine Levenson, LMSW, ACT Team Leader, Lincoln Behavioral Services
Who Should Attend? This seminar contains content appropriate for ACT Team Leaders clinical staff (social work macro) at intermediate and advanced levels for ACT team leaders and for participants (ACT Team Staff) all levels of practice in Michigan.
Training Description: Day 2 assists Team Leaders to infuse new learnings as they work with their own individual ACT teams. Through video, handouts, discussion and practice, teams’ work together using the training materials and class experiences from Team Leader Day 1 to recognize and plan for improved team functioning. Team assessment tools, portions of the Field Guide, the MIFAST tool and Medicaid Guidelines hone in on important consumer outcome measures that occur with highly functioning teams; activities are used to identify strengths and areas in need of further support with the opportunity to create a team plan to enhance current team functioning. ACT 201C is developed in cooperation and consultation with MDHHS and is a building block to full ACT fidelity implementation.
Expectation for whole ACT team involvement:
Team Leader participation and registration is required ACT 201C – Day 1 & Day 2.
Team Members participation required with own Team Leader on Day 2. Must have both to participate.
ACT teams have found that by preparing consumers prior to one day of team unavailability, rescheduling ACT team visits originally on training day, pre absence problem-solving planning with consumers has successfully allowed entire teams to learn and participate together.
