History and Evolution of the Field Model of Intervention

History and Evolution

The Field Model of Intervention orientation, in its prior format, was the first foundational model of intervention to focus on the clinical aspects of assessment and alignment strategies in working with complex and resistant clients, families, and crisis populations. It was formerly packaged in a three-day classroom only experience and coupled with a mandatory pre-requisite 6-hour online lecture and post-test. It remains a 28 hr. NAADAC approved training (#735).

The newly re-written model, The Field Model of Intervention Workshop, while continuing to be fundamentally rich in clinical assessment and alignment strategies and case studies (same NAADAC certified content as historic model), now offers both the seasoned intervention specialist and the emerging new practitioner, educational consultant, treatment executives and treatment support staff, and admissions and marketing professionals, the opportunity to explore in an interactive and experiential way, power hitting topics such as leadership vs. dominance, boundaries, projection, transference/counter-transference, personal and professional ethics, the act/react dynamic and joining techniques in crisis and family work.

The most significant difference in the content and presentation of the new workshop is that it focuses more on the personal and professional development of the practitioner rather than the process and procedure of conducting “old school” style interventions.

Interactive and Equine Experiential- NON-Method based or Formulaic

Workshop participants will engage in robust conversations about how to ethically and strategically organize an intervention outreach effort based on clinical assessment skill sets and ethics, a) learned in the workshop and synthesized from their work and life experience, b) practiced through role play with colleagues and c) having explored their own intrapersonal frameworks with the help of our horse partners.

Workshop attendees will not be taught ANY formulaic, , method based intervention or procedural techniques.  However, all models, particularly the surprise, invitational and crisis models will be discussed at length.

The Field Model of Intervention Goals

The goal of the workshop is that participants leave with fresh personal and professional insights in how they operate in their worlds and gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of how leadership in self and others directly effects outcomes in working with complex populations. Attendees will take away new skill sets in leadership and be encouraged to honestly self-appraise where they may best fit the broad scope of intervention service work.

Attendees aspiring to become “first and second chair” interventionists may be invited by Jane Eigner Mintz as personal mentees and receive supervision and support as they prepare to take on their own caseloads.

New Format and Audit Participation

The Field Model of Intervention Workshop’s groundbreaking new teaching format is a combination of online, classroom, real time-role-play and equine experiential work. The 2.5 day two-day clinical and experiential Workshop  focuses on building and refining professional skill sets so that intervention strategies may be used in all spectrums of clinical, managerial, marketing and admissions work.  The ability to audit the Saturday mornings opening experiential workshop is now available for those that wish to get a glimpse of what innovative work is being done to help foster and grow the next generation of practitioners.

WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS WISHING TO ENROLL IN THE 2.5 DAY EDUCATION-CERTIFICATE TRACK MUST BE PRE-AUTHORIZED BY JANE EIGNER MINTZ or JENNIFER MIELA AND WILL BE REQUIRED TO ENGAGE IN A PHONE INTERVIEW AND MAY BE ALSO BE ASKED FOR REFERENCES AND CREDENTIALS.
