Description: In a period of continuing flux in health care and behavioral health, particularly the recent change in behavioral health from grant funding to fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement, managers must develop and enhance their skill sets to perform a wide array of tasks and responsibilities. This workshop will cover selected competencies needed by managers to achieve personal and organizational success during this period of transition. The topics to be covered will include: understanding the various approaches to management and determining what style works best for you; techniques to optimize use of time and prioritize responsibilities; delegating tasks while building in accountability and oversight; developing and sustaining effective team functioning; and strategies to plan and manage large projects. This workshop will utilize case studies, role play and group projects. Managers who attend this workshop will develop the basic management skills critical to addressing complex FFS issues.
This workshop is part one in NJAMHAA’s three-part Management Training Series, which has been offered by NJAMHAA for over 10 years and has provided high quality, professional training to hundreds of Behavioral Health managers. The 2019 Management Training Series will depart from its previous format and content to address the key issues and challenges in managing under FFS reimbursement. The sessions will cover the primary skills and expertise necessary to navigate and succeed in a complex FFS environment. Professionals who attend the training will learn to develop strategies necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex and competitive environment.
These sessions can be taken individually or as a group. Attendance for all three series is encouraged for continuity and to achieve the maximum learning experience. The other sessions are:
- Financial Management Under A FFS Paradigm (April 23, 2019)
- Human Resource Management Under FFS (May 30, 2019)
In addition, for each session attended, attendees are eligible for 5 continuing education units.
