Who Should Attend:  Clinicians     

Training Objectives: The DLA-20 Training is a train the trainer series for staff that have already been trained on the DLA-20.  The series will consist of 5 webinars and each webinar is 2 hours in length. We will be doing advanced training on both the Adult MH and Youth MH DLA-20 tools in preparation for staff to become certified trainers.  During these trainings staff will gain advanced knowledge of strategies to effectively teach the DLA-20 to fidelity through an in depth study of the anchors.  Staff will demonstrate competency on teaching anchors, answering most frequently asked questions, and administering DLA-20’s.  Upon successful completion staff will be a DLA-20 certified trainer.
