This 3hr training is open to RTC providers and RTC LMHA/LBHA liaisons.

Engaging families and caregivers of youth in RTC is an essential component of effective treatment. However, engaging families is often easier said than done and not all engagement strategies are created equally. This workshop will introduce participants to research backed family-focused practice standards associated with improved program performance and youth outcomes in residential care. Using a learning collaborative model, small group discussion, and interactive skills-based exercises, participants will develop a family engagement toolkit focused on overcoming barriers and creating goals and action plans to support a culture of family engagement in their RTC.
