When: Wednesday, July 24 – 10:00 AM

Location: Hillside Conference Center, 1 Mustard St, Rochester, NY 14609, USA

Summary:

Do you currently serve youth and young adults under 21 years of age at risk of or with a Substance Use Disorder or do you have an interest in developing services to this population? If the answer to the question above is yes, then this is the workshop for you. This one-day Regional Forum will review and assist you in learning about the “New” Children and Family Treatment and Support Services (OASAS Part 823 – Children’s Services) and the developing endorsement for Adolescent Services to the Part 822 Community Based Services. This will be a practical, hands-on working session that will assist you in exploring the clinical opportunities for servicing this population and their families, while also giving you the tools to determine fiscal viability in an ever-changing environment. OASAS is pleased to be partnering with the Coordinated Care Center, Inc (CCSI) and Center on Addiction to provide this informative one day session.

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training @ Morrisville Campus
Jul 25 @ 8:30 am – Jul 31 @ 12:30 pm

You are more likely to encounter someone – student, friend, family member, neighbor, or member of the community – in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. The 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 – teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

What Participants Learn:

This no cost course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, ADHD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorders. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling – rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan: Access for risk of suicide or harm; Listen nonjudgmentally; Give reassurance and information; Encourage appropriate professional help; and Encourage self-help and other support strategies.

*Must complete both days* Thursday, July 25th and Wednesday, July 31st from 8:30am to 12:30pm

 

Training for Diagnostic Classification (Ages 0-5) of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood @ Melville Marriott
Jul 25 @ 9:00 am – Jul 26 @ 5:00 pm

As part of the Preschool Development Grant Birth through Five Initiative (NYS B5), the New York Center for Child Development ( NYCCD) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) in collaboration with CTAC, are pleased to announce upcoming trainings on the ZERO TO THREE DC:0-5™, Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood.

DC:0-5 is a research and clinically-informed multi-axial diagnostic system that provides a comprehensive guide to the clinical disorders found in young children. New York State plans to make DC:0-5 the recommended diagnostic tool for all children birth to age 5.

This comprehensive training is specifically designed for participants who are directly involved in the developmental and mental health evaluation and diagnosis of children birth to five years of age.

This training provides history and background around the need for and development of a specialized diagnostic classification system for infancy and early childhood, as well as approaches to diagnosis from an Infant Mental Health perspective which is developmentally informed, relationship based, contextual and culturally competent.

Participants will learn about the multi-axial classification system and gain an understanding of each: Axis I Clinical Disorders, Axis II Relational Context, Axis III Physical Health Conditions and Considerations, Axis IV Psychosocial Stressors, and Axis V Developmental Competence.

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in Community of Practice calls following the training for support on use of DC:0-5™ in their practice.

Participation in this training is free of charge and participants will receive a complimentary DC:0-5 manual.

This training will offer 11 CE contact hours for licensed social workers and LMHCs through the NYU Silver School of Social Work. Participants must attend both days to receive full credit. Attendees will be able to access certificates online following the training.

Register early since capacity is limited. Additional trainings will be offered based on demand in each location (All Trainings are 1.5 days (9am-5pm on Day 1 & 9am-1pm on Day 2).
