Join us as a parent activist and clinician join together to discuss the significance of inclusion of families during higher level of care treatment. This presentation will expand attendees' understanding of the magnitude of struggles that parents, in particular, experience during the  process of attempting to secure entry to higher level of care treatment. Through case examples, the presenters will highlight specific interventions that were successful to break down barriers to treatment entry. Additionally, specific clinical focus will be on the use of motivational interviewing as a technique for the client as well as family members as an indicator of positive entry to treatment. Finally, the presentation will include the personal disclosures of the presenters' time working together while in higher level of care treatment that aided in positive treatment outcome.
