IPS 101 Training, Asheville

June 12, 2019 @ 8:30 am - June 13, 2019 @ 4:30 pm EDT


The Individual Placement and Support (IPS) 101 training formerly called SE Foundations is required by all IPS team members (Team Lead, Employment Specialist, and Employment Peer Mentor) and Assertive Community Treatment team members (Vocational Specialists and Team Leaders).  This training meets the 12-hour service definition requirement for IPS and ACT teams.  

Due to limited availability, this training is currently only available for all IPS team members AND ACT Employment Specialists and Team Leaders. We are respectfully asking no more than 3 staff members per team to register for the training.  If there is space, we will extend the invitation to Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors, MCO representatives, behavioral health clinicians, etc.  We will offer additional trainings for other interested parties in the near future.  

The two-day training will be an introduction to the evidence-based practice, incorporating the philosophy, practice principles, and the elements of the practice.  

The training will take place Wednesday, June 12th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Thursday, June 13th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with an hour and fifteen minute lunch break each day (lunch will not be provided).  Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday the 12th and the training will begin promptly at 8:45 a.m. 

Look forward to seeing you all there!
