Case Management Training Series

**Please Note: These trainings have been combined with the Core Competency Series to become the "Foundations in Behavioral Health Trainings Series."  This new series is designed to provide a broader, more comprehensive curriculum for New Jersey's behavioral health workers.  Please click here for more information.

The Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care Technical Assistance Center (UBHC-TAC) offers an annual series of trainings geared toward enhancing the core competencies of case management and community outreach workers in New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS) funded programs. Outreach workers eligible to attend these trainings include those working with Integrated Case Management Services (ICMS), the PATH program, Justice Involved Services (JIS), Involuntary Outpatient Commitment (OIC), and the Early Intervention Support Services (EISS) program.  Developed in alliance with a variety of community stakeholders, this series focusses on enriching the fundamental skills of case management staff by addressing topics which include engagement, assessment, enhancing motivation, suicidality, working with families, documentation, legal issues, and substance abuse. Case managers who attend each of the offered modules will receive a certificate of completion for the series. This project also includes annual trainings on the topic of violence prevention which is open to DMHAS funded outreach services in general.
