Agency Name: Date: Brief Episode Stabilization Definition This service may be used to stabilize an individual following discharge from an institutional setting or to avert admission to this level of care. The service utilizes brief, concentrated interventions directed to stabilize psychiatric conditions, behavioral and situational problems and to prevent escalation of psychiatric symptoms, and wherever possible to avoid the need for hospitalization or other more restrictive placement. Services and interventions are highly individualized and tailored to the needs and preferences of the participant, with the goal of maximizing independence and supporting recovery. Brief Episode Stabilization services are provided to restore a participant’s ability to manage his or her illness and their ability to utilize treatment. These services are designed to restore prior functional level and reduce the likelihood of crisis recurrence. Interventions include practical problem-solving advice and assistance designed to address and remediate the antecedent causes of an emerging psychiatric or behavioral crisis; or to manage stressors related to exacerbation of ongoing medical conditions. Services would take place in the participant’s home or in other community (non-residential) settings. This intervention typically takes place in 4 to 8 hour blocks of time, and might last up to 24 or 48 hours. If the individual cannot be stabilized within this time period, a more intensive intervention is usually needed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
