Program Description:

This program will review the Family Based (FB) model and the development of specialty teams to work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families. The FB model stresses the critical necessity to work and communicate with the family to establish effective collaboration. The outcome of this commitment to collaboration is the enhancement and support of the family’s capacity to remain intact in a way that promotes the best interest of the child or adolescent. The addition of the Applied Behavior Analyst for individuals with autism spectrum disorder provides an important component to the traditional FB team that enhances the skills of the family and the child, aids in continuity of care, crisis intervention, case management and advocacy for the client and the family.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of the program, participants should be able to:

1. Describe structural family therapy as utilized by family based services
2.
Identify tools used in family therapy
3.
