TIP® Community Network

Dr. Hong has trained many agency staff to be facilitators of TIP®. As the number of agencies using the TIP® model has grown over the years, close agency network has gradually formed to provide continuing education / refresher opportunity. Periodic gathering of practitioners in a supportive, collaborative environment has fueled interest in becoming a truly genuine facilitator of TIP®. Agency leaders are committed to partnering with CROSS to help them strengthen the implementation capacity by sharing evidence, best practices, fidelity assurance, and other resources. A growing network of learning community has called for a formalization of TIP® Community Network.
