Self-Management Support: A Scalable and Rallying Solution
About the Session:
Self-management encompasses actions individuals can take to regain control of their health by adopting behaviours that reduce symptoms, prevent relapses and improve everyday wellbeing. Founded on evidence-based data, best practices and 25 years of Revivre’s support group experience, the J’avance! Program and its five self-management support workshops have now been offered to more than 2,700 participants by 30 organizations in Canada and Switzerland. With amazing testimonials and results demonstrated by research, this group approach has the potential to provide an operational solution to the accessibility challenge, as a complement to psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. In this presentation, we will explore the J’avance! approach and the five workshops, the results obtained so far, and how an organization can easily and quickly implement it.
Stéphanie Fontaine’s role is to deploy the J’avance! Program across Canada and internationally by establishing new partnerships. She is a Fellow of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries and cumulates 20 years of multi-disciplinary project management. Stéphanie lives with bipolar disorder and was nominated by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health (CAMIMH), as 2016 Face of Mental Illness.
Family Centered Treatment: Implementing for Sustainable Outcomes
About the Session:
Effective implementation of innovative treatment approaches for families in crisis and youth-at-risk can be a challenging venture.

This presentation will look at methods of implementation and the clinical presentation of the evidence-based in-home therapy model for families and youth-at-risk known as Family Centered Treatment® (FCT).
