Join us for a Networking Luncheon and C.E. Event on
"G.A.I.N.S. – Getting Along in Society: A program- Based Model for Improving The Interpersonal & Life Skills of Individuals"
Presented by Carol P.M. Tyler, Psy.D.
About the Speaker, Dr. Carol Tyler is a Forensic Psychologist transplanted from Canada to Hawai`i, recently landing in California. Early in her career she assisted in opening the first AID’s clinic shaping her future passion for working with the underserved. Dr. Tyler’s experiences working in the corporate world prior to completing her doctorate contributed to developing her unique view of program development and delivery of services in the mental health field. During her 28 years living in the islands, Dr. Tyler built a private practice focused on working with adolescents and adults from many different cultures, specializing in trauma, sexual abuse, and the severely mentally ill, with a strong concentration in the judicial system.
Course Abstract, Based on the teaching family program developed through the University of Kansas, the G.A.I.N.S. program trains residential counselors in group home treatment procedures, remedial education techniques, juvenile law and the organization of semi-self-government for the youths and community relations. The program is designed to provide maximum instruction and feedback to youths when they are first placed in a residential program and then, as the youths develop skills and self-control, the structured elements of the program are reduced and replaced by a more natural set of feedback conditions. As the youths accomplish the behavioral goals of the program, they and their guardians are prepared for the youths’ return to the natural home.
Course Objectives, At the conclusion of the workshop, the attendee will be able to:
Explain the philosophy and the key components of the G.A.I.N.S. program
