Treatment Planning:  A Best Practice Clinical Model for Children and Families
(2 Days of Interactive Training Followed by 3 Webinars)

Treatment 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 payers.

These 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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

The 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 complex cases.
