Description: This workshop will provide an overview of empirically-supported, recovery-oriented interventions for individuals with serious mental illness (SMI). Workshop participants will be introduced to evidence-based psychotherapeutic interventions for SMI, as well as community-based interventions aimed to address needs for housing, employment, and/or peer support. This workshop will also provide tools to support clinicians in adopting a recovery- oriented and strengths-based stance to clinical documentation, treatment planning, and care coordination. With principles such as person-centered care and shared-decision making at the heart of recovery-oriented interventions, attendees may benefit from the workshop even if they do not serve SMI populations.
1. Participants will be able to identify 2-3 empirically-supported, recovery-oriented psychotherapeutic interventions for the treatment of serious mental illness.
2. Participants will also be able to recognize and integrate recovery-oriented, community-based supports to augment individual psychotherapeutic interventions.
3. Additionally, this workshop is designed to help you create treatment plans and maintain records that are aligned with recovery principles and person-centered care.
