Taking the Duel Out of Dual Diagnosis: Reflecting, Honoring and Connecting with Individuals with Intellectual and Develo
Time & Location
About the Event
Trauma and chronic toxic stress are now recognized as near universal experiences of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) often resulting in a complex array of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. Unfortunately, the needs of those with IDD often go undertreated or minimized as behavioral issues. Unresolved and unaddressed, their suffering and pain interferes with their ability to positively engage with life.
This presentation will explore how all behavior is communication, ways to translate that communication into the needs being expressed and the hidden resilience developed through adaption to a world that does not process the way you do.
