Stepping it up: A Rational Approach to Psychotherapy in the Public Sector?

Stepping it up: A Rational Approach to Psychotherapy in the Public Sector?

This presentation focuses on ‘stepped care’ as a response to the needs for psychotherapy services in the public sector. This approach has become part of government policy on Mental Health Care and has become prominent in the literature over the last 10 – 15 years. The presentation will include some initial findings and experiences of a small stepped-care program trialled between the Westmead Psychotherapy Program and the Emotional Health Clinic and Research Unit (EHCRU) clinical psychology program for personality disorders, and highlights the wider discussion around person-centred care in public mental health service settings.
