Understanding Critical Time Intervention: Winter 2019

About this course

Ready to implement Critical Time Intervention? Join this course to learn how. Critical Time Intervention (CTI) is a focused, time-limited approach to case management that is designed to connect people with community supports as they transition into housing from homelessness or institutional settings such as prisons and hospitals. CTI is an evidence-based practice that has been adopted internationally and across the United States to strengthen the support networks of veterans, individuals who have been incarcerated, or those who have experienced recurrent homelessness. We bring together national CTI experts, a team-based learning approach, and engaging multimedia technology. The course covers CTI principles, evidence for CTI, phases of CTI, creating community linkages, fidelity measures, and skills for implementation.

This course will give your agency the tools it needs to implement CTI. During the final session, your team will meet with a t3 faculty coach to discuss implementation challenges and next steps specific to your context.
