‘Git-r-done’ for MultiSystem Kids with Diverse/Complex MH/MR Needs - Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Bernie Fabry, Ph.D., BCBA, Lead Psychologist, Western Psychiatric Institute & Clinic/UPMC, Pittsburgh, PA
This presentation will describe the development of a multi-agency, multi-system collaboration to serve the most complex and challenging kids with dual MH/MR diagnoses. The model includes (1) community-based residential placements that can safely and effectively care for these kids while (2) an interdisciplinary mobile treatment team provides ongoing functional assessment and expert-guided interventions that meet kids’ needs and builds capacities for success. Families sit at the head of the table during meetings and are encouraged and supported in participation.
