“Therapeutic Goals for Adolescents in Crisis.

Wednesday, October 1st, at 1pm CST

Counseling adolescents in crisis can be challenging due to both systemic and interpersonal challenges of the adolescent client. In this presentation, attendees will learn specific counseling goals for adolescents in crisis, which lead to stabilization and continued care. The Crisis Stabilization Scale will be used to identify progress toward stabilization, which can be helpful in determining the level of care needed for an adolescent in crisis and providing evidence to third-party payers on the need for continued care.

In this webinar attendees will:

Recognize the importance of therapeutic goal attainment for adolescents in crisis
Identify the four broad categories of therapeutic goal attainment for adolescents in crisis
Identify how therapeutic goal attainment can be evaluated to demonstrate stabilization to both the client and stakeholders
