The Transition to Independence Process (TIP) system is an evidence-supported practice based on published studies that demonstrate improvement in real-life outcomes for youth and young adults with emotional/behavioral difficulties (EBD). These outcomes have been demonstrated at sites where personnel have undergone competency-based training that is conducted at the community site and through teleconference supports provided by Certified TIP Model Consultants. The TIP model training materials are designed for personnel serving transition-age youth and young adults (14-29 years old) and their families.
Through this website one can access TIP Model Orientation through online modules and associated quizzes. These materials are particularly helpful for assisting in orienting new personnel to the TIP Model at your site as a way of helping to sustain your transition program.
Three Tier Training
The TIP Model orientation and training is supported across three Tiers.
Tier I: Overview of the TIP Model
The new TIP System Development and Operations Manual is now presented in Chapter 2 of the Transition Handbook (Clark & Unruh, 2009). Chapter 2 is written by Hewitt B. “Rusty” Clark and Karen Hart and is entitled Navigating the Obstacle Course: An Evidence-Supported Community Transition System. This chapter describes the entire Transition to Independence Process (TIP) Model and illustrates the guidelines and practices that enable Transition Facilitators to work effectively with the youth and young adults and their families.

Tier II: TIP Model Orientation Modules
The modules provide web-based educational opportunities to learn about each of the core practices of the TIP model and illustrate how these are applied within the context of the TIP model principles. The modules contain scenarios, sample forms, quick references, worksheets and other tools for applying the core practices. Tier II includes TIP Model Orientation Modules addressing the following practices:
Tier III: Competency-Based Training
NNYT / SBHG provide flexible, on-site, competency-based training and support for implementing the TIP model with agencies and community collaboratives. The NNYT TIP Model Consultants use our Behavior Rehearsal Manuals for the on-site training and coaching of Transition Facilitators and their supervisory personnel to ensure proficiency in the application of the core competency practices.
Access to Training Resources
The Transition Handbook has been written to provide you and your personnel with an orientation to the TIP model. The Transition Handbook also provides a description of the application of the TIP model to eight settings (e.g., community collaboration of mental health agencies, education and vocational rehabilitation, juvenile justice). Access to training is provided at the bottom of this page.
We look forward to the possibility of working with you and your community site in the implementation of the TIP model to improve the progress and outcomes with youth and young adults and their families.
