Merchandise Description
‘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. Produced in 2006
