Mar 30, 2019 11:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 12:00pm


Description

With more people seeking services, many counselors face the turmoil of turning people to a waitlist. Instead of adding another name to that list, consider a pre-engagement group as an alternative. This poster examines the waitlist challenge and presents resources for a pre-engagement group, a simple solution to mental health care access. Additionally, current models are shared that include counselor educators, counselors-in-training and community partners.

  • Examine the waitlist challenge with relevant literature.
  • Identify an alternative to waitlists by examining models for pre-engagement groups.
  • Review resources and interactive activities to implement pre-engagement groups.
