Family Psychoeducation: Advanced Evidence-Based Practices

 

These days, serious mental illnesses are widely accepted in the medical field as illnesses with well-established symptoms and treatment. Despite this recognition, one of the most common roadblocks to successful treatment outcomes and to recovery is a lack of family support, as well as the lack of understanding within the family of the nature of the person’s mental illness. Based on content from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA), this course is part of the Evidence-Based Practices series designed to teach you the principles and practices that research suggests are most effective in the implementation of a family psychoeducation program. In addition, this training covers how to best develop an effective family psychoeducation program and provides helpful tips for mental health authorities. The blend of interactive exercises and instructive information will assist you in learning and applying this material with those you serve. Whether you are a mental health provider or an agency administrator, this course is an opportunity to develop new skills to support consumers, as well as to develop an effective program of this type in your own community.
