In a series of 2-hour presentations, local specialists will provide overviews of their areas of expertise.  Attendees will explore essential elements of clinical engagement for each area, including:

  • Introductory information. What is this? How common is this issue? What are the myths?
  • Direct and indirect indicators. How to recognize this may be an issue for your client. 
  • Effective clinical engagement. Common barriers to engagement; strategies to connect with or around these.
  • Informal assessment strategies. Ways to understand the unique scope of the issue for each client.
  • Ethical considerations. Though some issues may be beyond your scope to “treat,” you are still in a clinical relationship with a range of ethical obligations.
  • Appropriate referrals. What else exists in our community to support clients dealing with this issue?
