Abstract

"ACT Team Leader Training" is a two-day event for innovative leaders in Ohio and across the nation who are implementing an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team with aspirations of high fidelity to the model. ACT is an evidence-based practice for people with severe mental illness who may or may not have substance use disorders.

This event provides practical resources, tools, and methods for successful ACT implementation. It emphasizes interaction and collaboration among participants, who will engage in problem-solving, action-planning, and program-planning exercises. This event is an essential foundation for program leadership. Presenters utilize, as a primary teaching method, activities and materials that facilitate effective supervision of the ACT model.  Individuals from the same organization who attend this event will work together in small groups. This will promote and support the organizational structure and processes of ACT implementation that these group members will continue at their organizations after the training. Individuals who attend this event without colleagues from their organization will work in groups together.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss ACT Team Leader binder content and apply materials that will be useful to ACT implementation.
  • Describe the ACT Model and its Critical Ingredients.
  • Identify key considerations for building and sustaining an effective ACT team.
  • Describe how the Dartmouth Assertive Community Treatment Scale (DACTS) is used to measure fidelity to the ACT model.
  • List which ACT model components require action in order to achieve fidelity to the ACT model.
  • Begin development of a fidelity action plan, or refine the existing fidelity action plan, to guide efforts towards higher fidelity.
