Interventions in Long-Term Care Settings
Presented by Tom Eckart, M.Ed., LPCC-S
Providing mental health services in long term care settings can present the clinician with a number of barriers. This workshop will identify those barriers as well as explore ways to increase efficacy, thus increasing potential for client progress. Additionally, strategies to overcome said barriers will be discussed. We will also look at specific client populations and their unique needs as they relate to mental health treatment.
