A Course in PST

Printer-friendly version

A Course in PST consists of a series of online modules introducing PST principles, followed by 6 monthly case presentation calls. Clinicians will have the opportunity to apply PST to several cases and receive feedback from AIMS Center expert trainers on their reported application of clinical skills.

Clinicians can expect to develop beginning skills in PST, but not to develop full competency based on session audiotape review to fidelity standards (see Tier 2).
