CANS Assessment Tool Training: Nov 4-5
OACCA, in partnership with Dr. John Lyons, will present a two-day training to further the implementation of The Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS) evidence-based functional assessment tool across Ohio. The purpose of this training event is to increase the availability of certified CANS trainers in public and private child welfare and mental health agencies in Ohio.
The training will explore how the CANS provides direction for service planning related to needs and strengths and for levels of care placement decisions and mental health screening. Attendees can expect an overview of outcomes management, an explanation of the communication model, a detailed review of the manual with case examples, a practice vignette, and individual scoring of a vignette to attain certification in the use of the tool.
