The SPACE supervision/consultation group is intended to provide a platform for thinking through implementation of treatment steps and challenges that arise during SPACE treatment.
The group will meet weekly over tele-conference and each participant will have the opportunity to discuss their case and think about next steps in treatment.
Participation in this group is open only to individuals who have attended a full 2-day SPACE workshop.
Group size is limited to 6 participants and registration is on a first come first served basis.
Cost for participation will be based on a fee of $160 per participant per session, and participation is contingent on signing up for 12 sessions. The dates of the 12 meetings for this first group are listed below and all will be on Friday at 12-1:30PM Eastern. Thus, total cost is $1920.
Actual payment will be in two steps (first 6 sessions up front and last 6 sessions paid midway through).
Certification: Providers who have delivered SPACE with fidelity to three cases will be eligible for certification as reliable SPACE providers. There is no way to guarantee certification ahead of time and participation in the group and treatment of three cases does not create a commitment to provide certification.
Trainer Certification: There is not yet an established path for becoming a SPACE trainer. Providers who are certifiably reliable in delivering SPACE will be eligible to take future steps towards becoming trainers and teachers of SPACE as well. Understanding the treatment and being able to deliver it to the benefit of children are not synonymous with being able to teach it well or to respond to questions from new people learning the program. That is why it will be critical to assess those abilities separately from clinical fidelity.
