ACT Forums Continue
October 27, 2006

The next series of regional Alternatives to Coercive Techniques (ACT) forums are being scheduled for early and mid-December and will focus on work force development, systemic family involvement, and use of data in performance improvement. The Department of Public Welfare will be send notification of dates, locations, and invitations. In October Dr. Sandra Bloom presented the Sanctuary Model of trauma informed care to audiences in both the eastern and western parts of the state. Dr. Bloom provided current research information that demonstrates the epidemic level of trauma in society and especially among behavioral health care consumers. Her work now looks to address the impact of trauma on consumers, staff, and service systems.
