Hey Network faithful, an important announcement from Jim Wotring, Director, National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health, Georgetown University. Wonderful opportunity to learn about how to use the organizing framework and strategic approach laid out in Building Systems of Care: A Primer to advance their system building efforts.
The National Technical Assistance Center for Children’s Mental Health at Georgetown University is writing to invite you, and other key leaders that you identify as strategic to implementing your system of care initiatives, to participate in our next Primer Hands On training on May 1 & 2, 2013 in Washington, DC. This is an exciting, capacity-building initiative that we are sponsoring to build a network of key leaders who are trained in a detailed understanding of what it takes to build effective systems of care. Based on Building Systems of Care: A Primer, 2nd Edition, by Sheila Pires, the training covers the structure, components, and elements of effective systems of care and the strategic processes essential to engaging partners in systems building.
You may have already participated in a Primer Hands On training. If so, we are asking you to think strategically about others in your state, territory, tribe or community for whom the Primer training would be helpful and to forward this invitation to them. This might include key agency directors (e.g., child welfare, education, juvenile justice, etc.), providers, supervisors, judges, family and youth leaders, legislators, or others who are critical to your efforts to build sustainable systems of care. If you yourself have not yet participated in the Primer Hands On training, we encourage you to do so. Space is very limited so please respond quickly.
Each individual interested in participating must meet the following criteria and expectations:
The training will cover in depth material from the Primer, including:
We have built in an evaluation process for quality improvement that creates multiple opportunities for feedback on the use of the Primer, encouraging input that will continuously improve the Primer and the training.
This Primer Hands On training will be held May 1 & 2, 2013 in Washington, DC. The training will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 and adjourn at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, 2013.
