Treatment Planning: A Best Practice Clinical Model for Children and Families
(2 Days of Interactive Training Followed by 3 Webinars)
planning for children is an essential component to effective,
evidence-based care. However, while treatment plans are fundamentally
important, clinicians throughout the country struggle to develop ones
that are effective, practical and meet the requirements as set forth by
Medicaid. CCAI will offer a hands-on model to help staff throughout
your agency. To this end, many treatment plans tend to be
administrative products with little or no relevance in day-to-day
practice. The results in the actual treatment and subsequent
documentation of the session being entirely divorced from the treatment
plan leading to major compliance concerns with Medicaid and other
workshops are focused on utilizing the Transtheoretical Model of Change
(TTM) as a principle model for child-centered treatment planning.
Through it, participants will learn how to develop goals and objectives
consistent with a child's stage of change and then link these to
individualized interventions designed to promote resiliency and health.
This allows for a practical, dynamic document, as opposed to one which
is static and unchanging. Of particular importance is that the model
focuses on helping clinicians to identify a stage of change for the
family in relation to a child's objectives and goals, helping to assure
compliance with the identified patient requirements of Medicaid.
model with resonate with attendees as it focuses on treatment planning
and compliance at the practice level, as opposed to presentations that
list requirements and then request that staff merely "check the boxes".
In support of the model, the presenter will also provide attendees with
(a.) a common inter and intra agency language, (b.) quality assurance
systems where practice and compliance are intertwined and the progress
of a youth can be marked over time, and (c.) utilization management
systems which can be translated into day-to-day supervisory practice.
The presetation is interactive and will encourage feedback and
discussion from participants.
Three webinars will follow the training days to increase the learning and provide extended assistance in treatment planning.
webinars will help participants implement and sustain the treatment
planning model and will include both didactic and experiential learning
approaches. This will provide an effective and efficient method for
reviewing cases and developing treatment plans. As case conferencing,
if done well, requires a fairly rigid process to allow for adequate time
to introduce the case, subsequent discussion and analysis, the webinars
will be highly structured and require participants to prepare cases in
advance of the calls.
CCAI cas conferencing will be facilitated by Scott Migdole of Mary
Thornton & Associates. Prior to the initial conference, CCAI will
solicit volunteers who would be interested in presenting and discussing
one of their complex cases. Information will be provided to
participants prior to the first call outlining (1.) how to present a case
and the organization of its content and (2.) information about how the
teleconference will be managed including time keeping and the necessity
of the call being practical and outcome-based.
overarching goals of these webinars are to: implement the stages of
change treatment planning model; assist clinical leaders in increasing
their skills in developing and managing case conferences within their
own organizations; integrate Medicaid mental health services into the
plan with the ability to articulate these services into the treatment
program; provide presenters with assistance in developing treatment or
action plans for cases that are difficult or stuck; and increasing the
knowledge level of all involved in managing and planning for these
