About EB "PATHWAYS" — Online Digital Summit For Organizations & Leaders


  • Pour "The Foundation" To Build "The House"

    Building an evidence-based organization is not easy. And simply training your staff on effective evidence-based practices won't keep your programs going if grant funds dry up. You have to have an evidence-based organizational foundation from which to operate and be sustainable.

    While developing and implementing evidence-based approaches can be highly meaningful and profitable, a shaky foundation leads to it all crumbling down. It impacts all involved - employees and your "hard-to-serve" clients who aren't going to be able to get your help when they need it.
     
    There's a better way. And the effects are powerful.
  • EBO "MASTERCLASS" Changed The Game For This Organization

    "Historically our agency faced three challenges, time, money, and size. Dedicating staff time to plan, implement, and monitor all the activities that go along with becoming evidence-based was an obvious challenge for any agency. Having the financial means to dedicate to the processes,  goes without saying. Finally, maintaining office miles apart added additional challenges. During this time, our state reorganized the mental health systems.

    Becoming an EBO has benefited us in numerous ways. We've overcome challenges by using our strategic plan. Our mission and vision (from EBP Action Plan) keep us focused on realistic and achievable activities. Most importantly, as agency leadership, we are committed to being an evidence-based organization. It has helped us plan and sustains existing programs. It has also empowered us with successful grant writing, building a donor base for fund development, and recruiting and hiring qualified staff. 

    Most importantly though, we have seen successful outcomes for our clients and their families. It is exciting to hear our staff now talk about success stories with their clients, interest in new training opportunities, and future programs and services related to emerging research and best practices.

    We will continue to grow in terms of the number of clients served, continue to train staff in new evidence-based programs and services, as well as, expand services into additional locations. We are well-positioned to handle changes related to Medicaid expansion, the ACA, and other unknowns related to behavioral health care. We know that the use of technology and social media will continue to influence how we do business and provide services. As an agency, we want to continue to build our capacity in using data and outcomes to guide and inform decision-making.

    This program is an exciting journey and we cannot imagine providing services any other way! We continue to learn and challenge ourselves to be better. Please consider joining us in this effort!"

  • Transformation @ EBO Masterclass

    This Masterclass is a program focused on the organization, its leadership, and the operations team. It trains participants on the essential frameworks that are key for laying the foundation both for achieving enduring client outcomes and for consistently reaching and exceeding the expectations of stakeholders and funding providers.

    Evidence-based organizations (EBO's) consistently demonstrate the ability to achieve desired outcomes through effective problem-solving and informed decision-making.

    The EBO Masterclass walks those responsible for operational soundness to set up the foundation, support, and diversification of income for a long-lasting entity. It's this strength that will empower evidence-based practitioners to do their job and have a positive impact on the greatest number of people possible.

    After program completion, you'll be equipped to think and behave based on data. Data-informed decisions foster strong financial health.

    Whether you are just starting out, or are further along, the EBO Masterclass will help guide you by providing simple, easy to follow research-supported frameworks others have applied to successfully become and remain evidence-based.

    "Knowledgeable instructors, workbook usage, and very specific layout of materials"

    G. MCalla, Jackson, Behavioral Helath

    "After working for 26 years in healthcare, this is the first time I attended a program that focuses on ME, not the patient. It was fabulous and will help me in my career and personal life greatly. THANK YOU"

    K. Scorza, Seasons Center

    "It has helped us with successful grant writing, building a donor base for fund development, and in recruiting and hiring qualified staff. It has benefited our organization by “clearly” signaling to those we work with what our values are and what is required if you collaborate with us. We have seen successful outcomes for our clients and their families. It is exciting to hear our staff now talk about success stories with their clients, interest in new training opportunities, and future programs and services related to emerging research and best practices."

    J. Keene, San Mateo Probation

    "I would say that helping to change the “culture” in our county about service delivery has been our most successful accomplishment. I would simply like to express my sincere appreciation to Joyfields Institute. With their help, we have raised the level of service to those we supervise by providing better rehabilitative opportunities, increasing public safety, and accountability to victims. it has allowed our department to set a standard in our county for policy development and program procurement. The expectation of all those we work with is that EBP must be a part of our collaboration. It has also raised our standing with our Board of Supervisors and Law Enforcement partners."
