150 Executive Park Blvd., SF; First Floor Conference Room 
 

For years we have been told to be “strength-based and client centered”, however, we have not typically been told what this really means.  In our field, we often focus on the negative events that have occurred or the pathology that a client and their family members seem to present with.  We forget, in the midst of all of the difficulties, that everyone has strengths and abilities and good intentions.  This training focuses on the importance of teaming with family members from the beginning and offers a variety of case plan strategies to create a family friendly process that will increase our ability to engage effectively with families who just don’t want to work with us!  We will also clarify what it means in terms of our work to be “strength-based”.

The primary goal of all recent editions of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual for mental disorders (DSM) has been to improve consistency of diagnosis provided by different providers. The quality of mental health services can be negatively impacted when there have been different diagnoses given to the same patient by different providers.

Learn a step-by-step rule-out to follow at the beginning of the differential diagnosis process. Use decision trees to make differential diagnoses based on observed primary mental health symptoms.
