Putting Resources Into Practice – My Support Packet- Resources & Referrals – Virtual Targeted Training (VTT)
Have you ever supported an individual who chose to change providers or disenroll from services? This can be a very challenging time for providers as they help to ensure the individual has all necessary resources and contacts available to them. This training is a continuation from the August 24th, 2021 training, highlighting a resource called “My Support Packet,” which was developed to support individuals and families with identifying and tracking the important contacts in their lives, specifically focusing on Resources & Referrals. We will refer to Charting the LifeCourse tools and resources as part of the packet. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers (Q&A) to discuss this resource.
