The Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care Technical Assistance Center (UBHC-TAC) offers an annual series of trainings geared toward enhancing the core competencies and foundational skills of the behavioral health workforce for programs funded by the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS). Developed in alliance with a variety of community stakeholders, this series focusses on practical applications of the fundamental skills necessary to implement evidence-based and promising practices for individuals recovering from mental health and substance use disorders. This series is offered several times each year and is currently being provided virtually. Target audiences include Integrated Case Management (ICMS), Projects for Assistance in Transitioning from Homelessness (PATH), Supported Housing, Community Support Services (CSS), Justice Involved Services (JIS), Involuntary Outpatient Commitment (IOC), Early Intervention Support Services (EISS), and Partial Hospital/Care program staff.
Our department forwards the flyers for registration to qualifying DMHAS funded programs several months prior to the beginning of each training series. The Foundations Series includes the following courses:
