Learn the fundamentals of the IPS model and how to effectively provide employment services to individuals served by ACT teams. This training will cover each of the eight principles of IPS and review evidence for the model. We will explore how employment helps individuals with their recovery, even if they continue to experience mental health symptoms, substance use disorders, homelessness, or other issues. We will use a case example to demonstrate some of the principles of IPS.
