Additional Information

The LEAP (Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner) training programs teach participants a set of evidence-based practices to strengthen mutual respect and trust with the aim of developing effective partnerships among a range of persons in a variety of settings. The LP-I training helps persons with mental illness that are either non-adherent, or only partially adherent, become fully engaged in treatment and services and to cooperate with persons who are trying to help them (with accepting treatment and services and/or in law enforcement/corrections settings, with de-escalation and following requests/directions).

The success of the LEAP approach rests on three pillars:

1.   Consumer Focus: Developing a new relationship with the mentally ill person that focuses exclusively on problems that the “patient” perceives.

2.   Treatment Team: Breaking down the barriers that keep the provider, family, other stakeholders ( law enforcement, judges, attorneys), and consumer from functioning as an effective team.

3.   Common goals: Finding common ground between team members and the consumer, that can be shaped into goals that will be worked on together.
