An Introduction to Psychiatric Rehabilitation-A comprehensive Training Course

Curriculum

 

Course Description:

This course addresses psychiatric rehabilitation and the skills necessary to transform the ways practitioners are prepared and utilized in community mental health centers, the role or scope of practice of practitioners, and community mental health program development, implementation, and evaluation. The course objectives will prepare practitioners to be leaders in behavioral health, effective practitioners, advocates for all persons served, brokers of community resources, and collaborators and consultants to help remove barriers to individual’s recovery.

“There are models and strategies of psychiatric rehabilitation service delivery that increase persons in recovery goal attainment and service satisfaction. Practitioners who hold the CPRP credential are proud to illustrate their commitment to professional growth and personal strengths. Having the knowledge that there are ongoing competency assurance requirements can lead to positive performance and practice change within an organization, an agency and even a state” (PRA website, 2015).

Objectives:

1. Develop a psychiatric rehabilitation program based on the needs of the persons served and reflecting PRA standards.

2. Demonstrate knowledge of the community, environmental, and institutional barriers that impede practitioner’s success by designing a plan to alleviate barriers in the community mental health setting.

3. Integrate information from curriculum and apply research about effective psychiatric rehabilitation interventions.

4. Comprehend the different contemporary issues that affect persons served and their families and, subsequently, the psychiatric rehabilitation process.

5. Understand the role of the practitioner and the ongoing process of personal and professional development.
