Problem-Solving Therapy (PST)

January 31 & February 2, 2023

Presented by Danielle Cameron, ACSW, MSW

Problem-Solving Therapy (PST) is a flexible and adaptable approach to assist individuals in coping with a wide-range of problems. There is increasing evidence to demonstrate its effectiveness for a variety of populations and settings. This training will provide participants with an overview of the evidence and then focus on how it is delivered to service recipients in the Full Service Partnership (FSP) programs across LA County. The training will walk through the treatment strategy to include assessment, application of PST, psycho-education, use of PST Toolkits, and tips for adaptation. The training will provide participants with opportunities to apply PST through the use of clinical vignettes and problem-solving scenarios. The focus is on practical tools that practitioners can use in the field with those who struggle to solve simple and complex problems. The tools discussed and provided can be used as part of a larger PST structured treatment plan or on an as-needed basis. Participants can expect to understand the core tenets of PST and be able to apply PST skills upon completion of the training.
