Embark Behavioral Health
September 7, 2021
The Embark Treatment Approach is a familiar concept to many of Embark Behavioral Health’s clients and partners. It doesn’t matter which facility, program, or staff you work with, you’ll find that Embark embraces a consistent foundation of essential treatment components, including CASA Developmental Framework, Experiential Therapy, and SMART Recovery.
One way Embark creates a consistent foundation is through our annual “Train the Trainer” Summit – or the T3 Summit. The T3 Summit is an essential part of cultivating Embark’s culture of caring. In addition, it helps us maintain consistently high standards in implementing the Embark Treatment Approach throughout the organization, ultimately benefiting how we serve our clients.
This year’s highly anticipated event included 24 leading practitioners from across the Embark network who traveled to Phoenix to attend. Participants with different backgrounds and expertise, from clinical directors to therapists, came together and shared an enthusiasm for training and discussing the latest behavioral healthcare knowledge. After this training, Embark’s trainers then move on to onboard new staff and facilitate a full, 16-hour new training every year at their respective programs.
Top experts within the organization shared knowledge and training in the Embark Treatment Approach. Those individuals include John Stewart (CEO of New Haven), who trained on Experiential treatment; Dustin Tibbitts (Embark Division President), who trained on Systems theory and treatment; Jake Sparks (Embark Treatment Director), who trained on Outcomes; and Rob Gent (Chief Clinical Officer), who trained on Development and the role of relationships. In addition, the keynote speaker was Embark CEO Alex Stavros, who pulled all these concepts together by sharing his view of the organization’s Culture, Vision, and Strategy.
As important as the new knowledge that the trainers left with was the warm camaraderie of the event. Many attendees felt energized and excited to share their new knowledge when they returned to their program teams.
