In this interactive, experiential webinar, participants learn the conceptual framework of Strengths-Based, Person-Centered practice. Providers also have the opportunity to

Dr. Kisthardt incorporates music and poetry inspired by discussions with people who have the lived experience of mental illness and substance use disorders.
Dr. Walter Kisthardt is a Professor of Social Work at the MSW program at Park University.

Dr. Kisthardt has also provided training for Ryan White case managers. He is currently collaborating with Truman Behavioral Health on a project to provide training in Strengths-Based, Person-Centered practice for persons with the lived experience of mental illness and co-occurring disorders who will assume roles as Peer Mentors. Those who have attended Dr. Kisthardt’s presentations have reported being validated in their work, being challenged to constantly strive to challenge themselves and their organizations to become ever-more creative and individualized in their collaboration and partnership with service participants, and to integrate humor, joy and hope into their holistic interventions.
