Engagement Skills and Healing Alliances

Training offered by Drexel University

Continuing Education Credits            No Cost            3 hrs.

Description:  Engagement is intended to be a fluid, strength-based process that forms healing connections between service providers and recipients. In our work with people, trust, compassion, and understanding is necessary. Unfortunately, our treatment services and responses often create mistrust and drive people away. Many seeking mental health care drop out; 70% do so after their first or second visit.

In the first moments of every interaction a tone is set which impacts progress. Services in the absence of engagement lead to needless trauma, unnecessary losses and shorter lives. People living with serious mental illness lose 14.5 years of potential life compared to “undiagnosed” individuals. This web-based training takes an in-depth look at engagement, a service imperative to achieve recovery goals and outcomes. A way of thinking and incorporating evidenced tools and recovery- oriented techniques (elements of motivational, strength-based, share decision making, person-centered evidence-based practices) as a practice framework to improves connections and make every interaction matter.

Learning Objectives:  By the end of this web-based training, participants will be able to:

  • Define engagement, the concept, process and basis for recovery support
  • Discuss traditional thinking and current methods focused on healing relationships
  • Identify common barriers/obstacles to engaging interactions
  • Outline a “promising” engagement framework
