ACT 101

The ACT in Action training is a one day training offered by OCEACT where your team will learn the basics of ACT. We will cover everything from the history of ACT, the make up of an ACT team, and the steps of implementing ACT. The training covers all the key components of the ACT model, including: the team approach; community based services, 24/7 crisis coverage; integrated dual disorder treatment; and integrated care.

Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery (EIMR)

The EIMR training is a one and a half day training that focuses on the EIMR material and how to implement it in one-on-one sessions and in groups.

Cognitive Behavioral Social Skills Training (CBSST)

The CBSST training is a half day training that focuses on the tools needed to implement CBSST and how it fits in with other modalities that your team is currently using.

Motivational Interviewing (MI)

The MI training is a one day training that focuses on a collaborative, goal-oriented style of communication with particular attention to the language of change. This training will review the basic framework of MI along with the development of micro-skills like open ended questioning, affirmations, reflective listening, and summarizing statements. Role playing is included for skill acquisition.

Certified Personal Medicine Coach (CPMC) Training
The CPMC training was developed by Pat Deegan and Associates and learning cohorts will soon to be offered by OCEACT & OSECE! The Certified Personal Medicine Coach Course combines online e-learning, practice and group video coaching over the course of an 11-week curriculum. Once certified, Personal Medicine Coaches will be approved to use Personal Medicine, Personal Medicine Guides and Personal Medicine Cards with individuals and in groups. A Certified Personal Medicine Coach (CPMC) is an expert in supporting people as they discover and use Personal Medicine in their recovery. CPMCs are dedicated to making sure people discover their own power to get well and to stay well. CPMCs help spread the message far and wide that recovery is real and there are things we can do to help ourselves. CPMCs help to activate people in their own self-care, and this leads to better health outcomes.
