Understanding Critical Time Intervention: Winter 2019

Understanding Critical Time Intervention: Winter 2019

About this course

Want to know more about Critical Time Intervention (CTI)? Considering it as a model for your agency? Join us for this course, which covers the principles of, evidence for, and phases of CTI. We will also discuss how to make community linkages and ways to bring CTI and/or CTI principles into your agency

CTI is a time-limited care coordination model that mobilizes support for vulnerable individuals during critical times of transition in their lives. The aim of CTI is to facilitate continuity of care and community integration by ensuring that these individuals have enduring ties to their community. This evidence-based practice has been adapted across the United States and internationally for use with formerly incarcerated individuals, veterans who have a history of recurrent homelessness, young people who experienced first episode psychosis, and other vulnerable groups during periods of transition. Our multimedia web-based course is led by CTI experts and utilizes an adult learning approach. The course covers the key principles of the CTI model, evidence for its effectiveness, and the tools that teams need to implement it.
