NIATx Virtual Change Leader Academy (September Series)
The Great Lakes ATTC offers this training for behavioral healthcare professionals in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI. This training is offered in response to a need identified by stakeholders in our region.
The NIATx Virtual Change Leader Academy is the new web-based version of the popular NIATx Change Leader Academy (CLA). The CLA has given thousands of behavioral health organizations the tools to make real changes that improve their systems of care. This interactive, expert-led program includes four weekly 90-minute learning sessions. Participants can also participate in an optional follow-up series of three monthly small group coaching sessions.
Participants in the virtual CLA will learn:
- The NIATx principles and how they motivate positive change
- How to build a change team and integrate NIATx principles at the organizational level
- How to conduct a change project to improve a specific process within their organization
Participants who attend all four weekly "Part A" training sessions will be eligible to receive 5.5 NAADAC Continuing Education hours. An additional 3.5 NAADAC CE hours will be available to those who fully attend the optional "Part B" sessions (three 1-hour monthly follow-up sessions).
