About the Course:

An Implementation Guide for Behavioral Health Program Administrators (TIP 55, Part 1, Chapter 2) Behavioral Health Services for People Who Are Homeless presents a series of vignettes that serve as teaching tools. Treatment vignettes describe the setting in which a worker provides services, step-by-step instructions for specific clinical techniques, and master clinician comments. Vignettes that incorporate prevention interventions describe situations in which a behavioral health service provider assesses prevention needs and either provides services or refers to a community agency. Some vignettes provide decision trees to help behavioral health service providers manage key points of service delivery.
