Dateline: January 19, 2011
Buffalo, New York
The New Year is here and travel/training season is in full swing. Last week, I was in Ohio and Virginia. This week New York and Idaho (keep your weather fingers crossed, it’s going to be dicey getting from here to there and home again).
Interest in “Feedback Informed Treatment” continues to grow. Agencies across the United States and abroad–as my travel schedule attests–are implementing the ORS and SRS in routine clinical practice. Clinicians are finding the support they need on the International Center for Clinical Excellence web-based community. As I blogged about a while back, the ICCE is the largest and most diverse group of practitioners working to improve the quality and outcome of behavioral health services. Many will soon be joining me in Chicago for the 2011 “Advanced Intensive” training. Once again, clinicians from all over the world will be in attendance–Sweden, Holland, England, Australia and so on. Interest is high as participants receive a thorough, state-of-the-art grounding in the principles and practice of FIT. I look forward to meeting everyone soon.
Last summer, I videoblogged about the event. Ah, summer! With everything my co-teacher, psychologist Susanne Bargmann, and I have planned, we promise a warm and rewarding event.
