Format: Self-Study Online Seminar


Despite the evidence that prevention outweighs treatment, it remains a challenge for clinicians to engage more in prevention and less in crisis. One of the reasons for this is how we have been trained. Another reason for this is how we’ve been socialized and our view of life. To change the world, change education – a process of unlearning, relearning, and learning - such a paradigm is what it takes to go from crisis to prevention in mental health.

Please join us and immerse yourself in this paradigm, and make a difference in the lives of the patients and clients you serve.

What you’ll learn

At the end of this online seminar, you will have:

  • Identified the barrier to move from crisis to prevention.
  • Learned how to shift from a crisis paradigm to a prevention paradigm.
  • Mastered tools and be ready to implement them in the work you do with your clients.
  • Increased your tools of talking with patients and clients, by identifying at least one thing you will start doing differently at the end of the seminar, as a result of the Socratic Motivational Practice framework.
  • Everything you want in one place, including an illustration of how to implement the newly learned skills during our role plays.
