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.
