Trainees will learn assessment/diagnostic and crisis intervention skills, as well as short and long-term treatment planning, and clinical documentation skills in our electronic health records system. The trainees will meet with clients for assessment and treatment at Contra Costa Juvenile Hall and in the community. The trainees will be exposed to multiple trauma-informed theoretical approaches and modalities.
