Week Seven: What Can We Do - Matching the steps consumers are taking with the interventions (i.e. services and supports) we can provide.

Week Nine: Special Topic – Using Functional Assessment Data
For program staff who complete the DLA20* as part of PBHS PRP, RRP, ACT and Mobile Treatment Teams, how can the rational for the ratings inform problem-solving interventions to address barriers/challenges and how areas of strengths might be leveraged to make progress?
