This program is intended to improve clinical skill in conceptualizing and providing high quality brief intervention, focused on treatment in the Collaborative Care Model (CoCM). It is challenging to stay focused on providing brief interventions when trained in longer format styles of treatment and when patients come in with changing concerns. This training will address reasoning behind this format, address the conceptualization of brief intervention, brief sessions, include techniques and role plays for keeping treatment encounters brief, and include practice with actual patient examples to apply the model.

Target Audience

This activity is only available and accessible to Towson Sheppard Pratt staff. It is not open for attendance to other sites, or non Sheppard Pratt staff. Registration is done by invite only to the Sheppard Pratt Towson staff.

This activity is intended for social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.

 

 

 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

1. Describe the difference between traditional psychotherapy and collaborative care/brief interventions regarding the pace of treatment, the pace of sessions, and the interventions that occur within the sessions.

2. Conceptualize actual recent intakes using the CoCM framework to plan for brief interventions.

3. Practice clinically beneficial ways of engaging patients while also keeping encounters brief.
