The SPACE 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 will have two tiers: Participation and Auditing:
PARTICIPATION: Participation is only open to 5 participants, and registration is on a first come first served basis. Participants will discuss their cases and think about next steps in treatment.
Cost for participation is based on a fee of $160 per participant per session, and participation is contingent on signing up for all 12 sessions. Thus, total cost is $1920.
AUDITING: Auditing is not limited in group size. Auditors will be able to join the tele-conference, view and listen to the cases and discussion - but will not be active participants in the discussion and will not present cases of their own.
Cost for auditing is based on a fee of $100 per participant per session, and participation is contingent on signing up for all 12 sessions. Thus, total cost is $1200.
The dates of the 12 meetings for this group are listed below and all will be on Friday at 12-1:30PM Eastern. (Dates are subject to change with notice in advance - I will try to avoid changes)
Registration for this group is open only to individuals who have attended a full 2-day SPACE workshop.
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.
