CE Webinar on Crisis Management Strategies
Providing crisis intervention services to patients can be a challenge for many correctional mental health professionals. In most systems, mental health crises result in the patient being placed on suicide watch or observation status, where treatment options are limited. This webinar will explore how to develop and implement an effective crisis management plan for patients experiencing acute distress.
Presented by Sharen Barboza, PhD, CCHP-MH, vice president of clinical operations – mental health at Centurion, LLC, the webinar offers 1.25 hours of continuing education credit for physicians (ACCME), nurses (ANCC), psychologists (APA) and CCHPs. February 7, 2019, from 1 pm to 2:15 pm CST.
