Session 4A: Preparing for the New NCA Standards on Mental Health Assessment: Best Practices and Training

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

New NCA Accreditation Standards for Mental Health require: a) Trauma-specific assessment of traumatic events and abuse-related trauma symptoms, b) Use of standardized assessment measures initially to inform treatment, and to assess progress/outcome, and c) Individualized treatment planning based on assessments that are re-assessed. Currently, these services are seldom provided, and few staff/community providers are familiar or proficient with standardized measures. An assessment model will be presented that includes existing and promising measures, examples of using information to prioritize treatment needs/match with evidence-based treatments, and how to periodically re-assess. Lessons learned from training models in Texas and Mississippi will be discussed.
