Target Audience

Social workers, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, educators, school personnel, mental health professionals, clinicians, health and human service practitioners, and other health care professionals.

Description

According to research, people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are more likely to experience trauma than those without I/DD. The interplay of I/DD and trauma can result in high levels of distress for individuals, which, when unaddressed, can lead to poor outcomes and further trauma. The trainer will utilize case studies and research to describe trauma in the I/DD community, as well as provide information about trauma-informed care. Trainer will utilize evidence-based practices (positive psychology and the neuro-sequential model) to discuss effective ways to prevent and intervene in crisesfor people who have co-occurring I/DD and trauma.
