In January 2021, the National I&R Support Center hosted a three-part webinar training series on Behavioral Health Crisis Management for Older Adults presented by Karen L. Fortuna, PhD, LCSW, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth College and Alyssa Gocinski, BA, MSW Candidate, Boston, College.
The webinar series addresses older adult crisis management, older adults and technology, and older adult mental health. The full webinar series is now available on the ADvancing States IQ online learning center. Aging, disabilities, and mental health network professionals are invited to watch the recordings of this webinar training series on behavioral health crisis management for older adults to strengthen knowledge and skills to meet the current and future needs of older adults with, or at risk of developing, mental illness. This training series emphasizes digital service delivery where digital is defined as any type of technology ranging from telephone, text messaging, videoconference, and social media to virtual reality.
Additional resources available on the IQ course include supplemental materials such as a crisis intervention case study exercise and a tip sheet for front-line specialists.
