Shared Decision Making

Playing Our Part: The Importance of Shared Decision Making  – A NYAPRS Short-Video – LINK

The Importance of Shared Decision Making- With the advent of recovery-based services, there is a paradigm shift and participants of services are now actively involved in the decision-making process of their care. We recognize that participants are experts in themselves and as such, have a significant role in making decisions about their care and having choices in order to make informed decisions. This webinar explores this new shift in the continuum of care.

Advance Directives

Building Partnerships through Advanced Directives – A NYAPRS Short-Video – LINK 

A Psychiatric Advance Directive (PAD) allows an individual to create instructions and designate someone to act on their behalf in the event the individual should become incapable of making decisions regarding her/his mental health treatment. It can help you get the treatment you want and avoid the treatment you don’t, even if you are unable to communicate those preferences.  In this 20 minute presentation we will review specifics of a New York State PAD, some of the information it should contain, and how to ensure providers know you have a PAD.

This training will provide an overview of Group Work defining each person’s role and the skills necessary for effective results.
