Exploring and Involving a Person’s Circle of Support to Improve Their Health and Recovery

July 26, 2017

3:00pm- 4:30pm EDT

The resilience literature and research on family involvement clearly demonstrates that connection with and support from a family member or another member of a person’s social network can promote resilience and improve the likelihood of achieving one’s health and wellness goals. Exploring and involving a member of a consumer’s social network requires skills that is often not taught in school. This webinar will provide an overview of the steps involved in the ‘Consumer Centered Family Consultation (CCFC)’ approach and the tools available to support staff. CCFC, which is rooted in principles of recovery, was developed at the Family Institute for Education, Practice and Research, University of Rochester Medical Center. It is an easy to use approach that assists staff to engage consumers in identifying who they would like to assist them with achieving a specific recovery or wellness goal; how to reach out and invite the family or another person in the consumer’s network to a session; and how to successfully facilitate a session with the consumer, the identified support person and the staff person. In addition to hearing from Dr. Tony Salerno, from the National Council and New York University, who was involved in developing this model, we will be joined by Barbara Green of PSA Behavioral Health Agency who has trained numerous staff to use this model.

In this webinar, participants will gain:
  • Recall why family support is important
  • Identify the 3 phases of the Consumer Centered Family Consultation (CCFC) approach
  • Identify their next steps to implement a consumer’s circle of support

  • Tony Salerno, PhD, National Council for Behavioral Health
