Documenting the Treatment Planning Process

 

Treatment planning documentation is a critical link between the client, the services you provide, and reimbursement. Unfortunately, the focus of detailed treatment planning has shifted into developing and completing the perfect form. The main goal of this course is to reinforce what you already know about plans of care, while offering you direction and structure for capturing the real therapeutic relationship on paper. You will learn how to better represent the care process by honing in on core principles for clinical documentation. You will take a fresh look at ways to record your client’s strengths, goals, and treatment objectives, while also evaluating methods to accurately represent interventions, outcomes, and discharge plans. To enhance your application of these concepts in your own setting, this course incorporates informative definitions, suggested best practices, as well as client scenarios you investigate during each phase of the treatment plan. Drawing on information from Adams & Grieder’s Treatment Planning for Person-Centered Care: The Road to Mental Health and Addiction Recovery, along with Schwitzer & Rubin’s Diagnosis and Treatment Planning Skills for Mental Health Professionals: A Popular Culture Casebook Approach, this course is designed for all service providers involved in the treatment planning process who wish to learn more about documentation. This module is text-based.
