Why Choose US

Efficiently Train and Maximize Provider Capabilities Within and Across Large Networks

Since 2004, we have worked with many state and federal mental health agencies, including social services, child welfare, juvenile justice, military, and education to help them use evidence to efficiently and effectively implement treatment plans. This benefits children, their families, and the entire community.

"The experience of becoming a MAP Training Professional and being able to share that knowledge with other clinicians in the state has been very rewarding. Not only is MAP an effective model that’s helpful in my treatments, but the training process and additional consultations from PracticeWise have made me a better clinician. It’s exciting to talk about MAP and to know I’m helping other clinicians as well as the children we treat."

Toolkit of Primary Support Resources Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP)

MAP is a framework and suite of our primary tools. They guide evidence-informed decision-making, delivery, supervision, consultation, and quality management of mental health services for children and adolescents.

The MAP system was designed to improve outcomes and quality of care. It achieves this through structured collaboration and a framework for coordinating individuals and information to effectively answer key questions. MAP provides the ability to guide decisions across a diverse service array, varying degrees of care across populations, and health care settings.

Managing and Adapting Practice Professional Development

One key way that we help solve implementation and sustainability issues is through our train-the-trainer model.

Our practical, cost-effective train-the-trainer approach streamlines training and the staff professional development process at the provider, supervisor, and administrator levels. The first step in this train-the-trainer pathways is becoming a MAP Therapist. MAP Therapists are better equipped to deliver individualized evidence-informed care efficiently and effectively.


Modular Approach to Therapy for Children Professional Development

The MATCH Professional Development Program helps individuals develop proficiency in the selection, organization, and delivery of common practices used in evidence-based treatments in order to improve their direct services to clients.

The program also offers training for those who wish to provide supervision, consultation, or training in the MATCH protocol. The MATCH Professional Development Program can foster varying levels of development, depending on the role a professional is intended to serve within their organization.
