Successful treatment begins with a clinician's ability to effectively assess a client's situation, symptoms, diagnoses, and treatment needs. Once a clinician has obtained information about their client through assessment, a functional treatment plan is necessary to then engage the client in the treatment process. Assessments and treatment plans are not one-size-fits-all and do require individualization and variation based on numerous factors.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to...
1. Discuss how to assess appropriate levels of treatment and know when to refer or transfer care
2. Demonstrate ability to conduct initial and ongoing clinical and diagnostic assessments
3. Create achievable, objective, and measurable goals that are individualized for the client
4. Evaluate effectiveness and quality control of a treatment plan
