CARE Network Medical ECHO Series - February 2023

February 28, 2023

This training will provide medical CARE Network designated providers with evidence-based guidelines for care and improve both access and quality of care for patients. Providers will have the opportunity to learn new referral processes and system-based protocols for working with other family-serving agencies, such as social services, law enforcement and the courts. A major goal of the ECHO sessions will be to promote interdisciplinary practice and collaboration among systems. Sessions will also include case presentations and discussion.

February's session with Maureen Vivas-O'Keefe, LCSW, will focus on using the PRIDE Skills from Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) as an Intervention to enhance attachment and communication.
