2018 ACT Symposium—Together We Can ACT!

When: October 18th-19th, 2018
Location: Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa

Join your colleagues from ACT Teams across the state! Systems are transforming with a focus on integrated care. Together we can share and learn best practices and discuss what this transformation means for ACT teams. This symposium will explore ACT as an evidence-based model; its core practices, operations and structure; ACT team dynamics, and much more.

All ACT providers in NYS, including team members, quality assurance staff, finance departments, and administrators are invited to join us.

The symposium will also provide a platform where teams can exchange ideas and learn from each other.        Workshops will help teams in strengthening their daily practice, including specialist roles. We will also have an opportunity to network while having some fun in the evening. Continuing Education Credits* will be available.

ACT Symposium Goals 

  • Participants will learn about the 8 roles of ACT Teams based on the TMACT fidelity and the Standard of Care.
  • Participants will increase skills in the areas of outreach, engagement, motivation, and transition.
  • Participants will gain deeper understanding of the 3 dimensions of ACT transitioning: engaging  consumers, managing wellness, and integration in the community.
  • Participants will gain information about trauma-informed care practices and multicultural awareness.
