Train The Trainer

This advanced course is aimed for providers who have already received basic CTI training; it prepares participants to teach others in CTI. This may be a suitable option for large businesses who want their own in-house trainers, as well as those with high staff turnover. This course is delivered over four days, with two to three hours of instruction per day; the schedule may be adjusted to meet your specific needs. PowerPoint presentations, break-out group discussions, and role plays are used to deliver the information, with plenty of time for Q&A. Pre-training discussions are done to ensure that training and documentation is tailored to your organization's and population's needs. The course cost includes a post-training session to help with follow-up inquiries and implementation plans.

Participants will leave the program with a collection of tools, methods, and activities to use while teaching others:

  • CTI's goals, ideas, and values.
  • The goal and responsibilities of each phase.
  • CTI's approach of identifying emphasis areas.
  • How to make successful connections between people and resources.
  • How to identify hurdles for each person and devise methods for overcoming them.
  • Ways to assess their program.

The Fidelity Review

Organizations frequently seek CTI training because it is evidence-based and has a reputation for producing better results. To correctly capture those outcomes, a CTI program should first go through a fidelity assessment, which assesses how closely providers adhere to the CTI model in reality. In an ideal world, an organization would perform a fidelity assessment once a group of clients has completed all phases of their CTI intervention. This might range from 6 months to a year after a successful implementation, depending on the length of the intervention. Participants will receive the following benefits from this training:

  • The fidelity review technique and measuring instruments.
  • Documents used to collect and evaluate data.
  • An explanation on how to utilize the Fidelity Scale, developed by researchers at the CUNY/Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work's Center for the Advancement of Critical Time Intervention Training.
  • Instructions for writing a narrative report.
