Navigating the DCFS DV Treatment Contract
This summer the DV treatment contract was updated and made part of the larger DHS treatment contract. This workshop is designed to inform therapists of the changes made, provide technical assistance on the contract, and provide an opportunity for sharing questions and answers. Therapists not yet contracted are welcome to attend and obtain information about contracting with the state to provide DV survivor and offender treatment.
- Attendees will know the basic requiements of the revised contract.
- Attendees will know how the new contract differs from the previous iteration.
- Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the DCFS DV treatment contract administrator.
