This is an advanced course for Assertive Community Treatment practitioners. The "ACT - Advanced Elements III" course will provide information about Service Areas of Assertive Community Treatment. Learners must complete "ACT - Basic Elements of Assertive Community Treatment" and "ACT - Advanced Elements I & II" before taking ACT - Advanced Elements III. This would be appropriate for QMHP. This course does not substitute ACT 101.

Topics Covered

Assertive Community Treatment Service Areas.

This course has been designed by the subject matter experts to provide direct care workers with an in-depth understanding of the various services areas available under the Assertive Community Treatment framework. This course will also provide the participants with additional information regarding how important these services areas are to the end client and how they relate to a larger coordinated effort with the support team. 

Additional Considerations

We offer many other courses that we would recommend taking. If you found this course helpful, you may also benefit from taking the Person-Centered Planning course with Mark Lowe.

Course Objectives

  • This presentation will discuss the range of service areas that team members provide to comprehensively meet the needs of ACT consumers, including:
    • Medication support
    • Psychosocial treatment
    • Community living skills
    • Health promotion
    • Family involvement
    • Housing assistance and Employment.
