Please join us as Dr. Kelly Christian and Dr. Sarah Cain Spannagel review a process to quickly match resources to distressed families. This process provides a streamlined method to formulate a working diagnosis and use a decision tree to link families to the right resources in a timely manner. Wait time for appropriate treatment cases can be reduced when using this triage assessment approach. An interactive discussion of helpful area resources and referrals will also be facilitated.
