Using Behavioral and Clinical Strategies to Assess Crisis and Need for Psychiatric Hospitalization  

Presented by Tim Baker, LCPC/ICPN Director

How do we as professionals determine “When is a crisis a CRISIS?” Using two separate   treatment perspectives: behavior analysis and clinical counseling, Mr. Baker will discuss how to assess a crisis and when is it appropriate to involve emergency services.  In addition, how both approaches can be used to help navigate the process and ultimately achieve a psychiatric hospital admission.

Mr. Baker has been providing leadership and clinical support for the Illinois Crisis Prevention Network for over 6 years. This workshop will identify different aspects of a true “crisis,” how to utilize different strategies to address the crisis, and to correctly identify when to involve emergency services.  We all know that even when this time has come, there are long, arduous hours of waiting at the emergency room, endless questions, and often disappointing results.  He will identify the roadblocks staff/families will face, how to navigate the system, and use different strategies to obtain a psychiatric admission, so that the individual in crisis can receive the help he or she needs.
