Event Description
About This Workshop: There has been a shift in residential care toward a more family-centered approach but until recently little was known about exactly how involving families might result in better client outcomes. Recently, the largest research study to date (on over 18,000 children in care) reveals the relationship between family functioning and numerous clinical and programmatic outcomes (“Hidden Figures: Is the Key to Improving Children’s Mental Health Through Better Family Functioning?”). This course will review the study’s major research findings, its clinical implications, and more importantly will offer residential programs a clear, research-driven, cost-effective, and practical method to use this information to improve its client outcomes. Learning Objectives: Understand how the study was conducted and why. Comprehend the major study findings and learn how to apply the data to improve client outcomes and well-being. Learn how to measure family functioning at the time of intake and how to make use of this information in a clinically meaningful way. Identify clients at intake who need family treatment the most. Understand exactly where to focus clinical attention and why. About The Instructor: Paul Sunseri, Psy.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and researcher who has developed the Intensive In-Home Family Treatment, an innovative treatment approach for children and teens in high conflict families who are at risk for out of home care.
