(If you have previously completed DMCS 715 – Strategies to Retain Workers Experiencing Mental Health Challenges within the last three years, you can receive an Exemption for this course upon presentation of an original transcript.)
This course provides a bigger picture overview of workers within their environment and offers the opportunity to integrate a systematic approach to remaining and returning to work into the workplace. Now more than ever, individuals responsible for disability management will be looked to for leadership. Evidence-based tools provide a means to be a stable force in an environment of ‘new normal’. Opportunities for problem-solving with peers, discussions, and the encouragement to identify the issues within the participant’s workplace are included, as well as communication strategies to assist with engaging in collaborative planning.
This course has been endorsed for 12 continuing education credit hours for CDMPs and CRTWCs.
