This 4 part, 24-hour team-taught series is offered between September, 2014 and June, 2015 at Philhaven in Mt. Gretna, PA and Pennsylvania Counseling Services in Lebanon, PA.
This 24 hour, four-part series, is designed for the Family Based practitioner who has completed both Foundations and Core training hours, and who have established competency in applying the operationalized Eco-Systemic Family Based treatment-model. Therapists who have completed their hours and whose supervisors deem them “capstone ready” are also eligible to participate in this series. he focus is on strengthening and fine-tuning skill-sets associated with the seven core Family Based clinical competencies across a wide variety of children and families These skill-sets include: therapeutic leadership, collaboration and accountability, systemic conceptualization, facilitative stance, systemic intervention, identifying relational patterns, and cultivating a therapeutic alliance. Learning is fostered through viewing, analyzing and discussing within small groups videotaped therapy sessions of the therapist’s own work, that of colleagues, and demonstrations from “the best of Family Based treatment” library.
In order for each attendee to the most out this training, everyone should bring blank copies of the FB Treatment Adherence Scale, the Brief Session Self-Monitoring tool, and the 8 verification forms that contain the full set of skills associated with the Core Family Based Competencies (this will be for reference only). Presenters are encouraged to bring in multiple video segments form multiple sessions.
This series is designed to help therapists:1) describe and identify the skill-sets comprising each of the seven core Family Based Competencies, 2) objectively and accurately analyze their sessions using the Brief Self-Monitoring version of the seven core Family Based Competencies and the Adherence Scale, and 3) objectively and accurately assess their effectiveness, both within individual sessions and across sessions. This series is designed to help graduated therapists who still need to establish competency to do so successfully.
