This training focuses on how clients transition out of intensive clinical programs like FSP. It examines the layered issues underlying transitions out of intensive programs, from a graduation when a client’s goals have been achieved to a disengagement in which a client may have an ambivalent separation from the program. It will review the scientific literature on transitions from Assertive Community Treatment and Intensive Case Management programs, discuss strategies for decision-making about transitions, and identify what is known and unknown about transitions. Then the training will review a best practice approach – a so-called Mock Discharge — for exploring transition as a team and for an individual client. The aim of the training is to prepare clinicians to use a high-quality strategy for transitioning clients to a lower level of care when this is clinically appropriate.
