Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a widely researched service delivery model for individuals with mental illness (and co-occurring substance abuse) who experience consistent, severe symptoms and who benefit from regular, intensive treatment from a multidisciplinary team of trained mental health professionals. Participants of this workshop will learn the Core processes involved in the operations of an ACT team.

Cognitive behavioral approaches (CBT) have helped people with a wide range of illnesses and behaviors achieve relief, remission and/or recovery. The practice involves working with people to increase their understanding of how thoughts, behaviors and emotions play a role in their reactions to stressful life events. CBT has a long history of application for people with substance use disorders (SUD). In recent years, greater focus has been placed on utilizing these concepts for those with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Staff members of intensive treatment teams help people with SPMI and/or co-occurring SUD navigate reactions to life events on a daily basis. Yet, staff often do not feel prepared with the range of clinical skills needed to effectively recognize and help people respond in a way that promotes recovery.

In this webinar (continued from CBT I), Assertive Community Treatment team members will continue to learn CBT concepts, skills, strategies to assist clients who are interested in modify their thoughts, feelings and behaviors, especially as they relate to severe mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders.
