A Parent's Guide to Evidence-Based Treatment

Have you ever wondered what your child is “doing” when they go into a therapy appointment? What do CBT, DBT, ACT, FBT and these other acronyms mean? What keywords should you be hearing or listening for when your kids are involved in therapy? We will review evidence-based and empirically supported treatments for common conditions such as depression, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, and self-injury.

The presentation is targeted toward helping parents and loved ones understand mental health treatment, how to choose the best treatment, and how to find credentialed providers in the area. The importance of outcome measures and ethical considerations in treatment, as well as determining when it’s time to transition to a new therapist or medication management provider will also be reviewed.

Part II: CSA System of Care Level 100 Series
Facilitating Family Resource Meetings (FRM)

In Fairfax-Falls Church, the Community Planning & Management Team (CPMT) recommends team-based planning as the best approach for service planning for youth with significant behavioral and emotional challenges which are present in several settings. Meeting with families, professionals working directly with the youth and family, and others who are important in the family’s life or who have knowledge of and can access resources are all important aspects of the team-based planning process.  Staff from DFS’ Family Partnership Program will share their expertise in facilitating family meetings and train case managers on how to effectively facilitate the Family Resource Meeting process to bring family members together, support professionals, develop plans, and identify community resources while mitigating issues that may arise during meetings.

Team-based planning is required prior to accessing CSA services. To effectively participate and facilitate FRMs, CSA case managers must have an understanding of engaging and collaborative approaches for working with youth, family, and teams.

AUDIENCE

• How to assess risk and identify resources and referrals.
Additionally, training will cover logistics of meetings; strategies for managing challenging behaviors; and tips on keeping the group focused and moving through the meeting process.
