The ICCE is pleased to sponsor the next FIT Café. Join ICCE faculty, Cynthia Maeschalck and Brooke Mathewes for four 1.5 hour facilitated online discussion groups, to ask questions, discuss and consult about your use of FIT and Deliberate Practice.
FIT Café consultation meetings provide participants with an opportunity to ask questions and raise topics for discussion that will enhance their FIT knowledge and skills. Café meeting agendas are driven by the areas of interest and questions brought forward by group members. Therefore, active participation is an expectation.
Registration is limited to 10-11 (max) participants in order to maximize learning opportunities and participation in discussions.
Dates: October 19, 26th; November 2 & 9, 2022
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM Central
This small group meeting is a perfect opportunity to get specific help with:
- FIT Implementations challenges
- Understanding and using client feedback and FIT progress graphs
- Understanding individual or agency aggregate outcome and alliance data
- Individual case consultations
- Implementing Deliberate Practice
The FIT CAFÉ is an open discussion format. Given that content is driven by participant interests and questions, no CE’s will be provided.
