Dual Diagnosis Foundations and Clinical Applications Learning Collaborative

Training Session Description:
The training series will begin with a focus on Dual Diagnosis Foundations; participants will discuss various types of disability, disability prevalence, etiology, phenotypes, and disability characteristics, including a close look at the diagnostic criteria and characteristics of an autism spectrum disorder.  Participants will also discuss the experiences of people who have an IDD, understand common vulnerabilities, and appreciate the culture of people who have disabilities.  The focus will then move towards discovering evidence-based treatments that have been successfully adapted for people who have an IDD. The series will investigate trauma vulnerabilities, understand rates of abuse and neglect, discuss the effects of trauma as well as adapted trauma treatment strategies for the population.  Participants will consider ways in which crisis responders can support people who have an IDD who are experiencing a mental health crisis. The series will also include a focus on Dual Diagnosis Clinical Applications, describing mental health assessment best practices, as well as special clinical and cultural assessment implications for the population, with an exploration of common dynamics found in families with special needs children. Participants will discuss the incorporation of play therapy techniques into treatment and finish the didactic training by presenting concepts on care coordination and building systems of care for the dual diagnosis population.  The training will be completed with a question-and-answer session and open discussion.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to:

  1. Define developmental disability and various types of disabilities.
  2. Describe the levels of developmental disability, various systems disability criteria, and medical versus social models of disability.

  7. Describe ways in which crisis responders can identify clients who have an IDD and explain appropriate ways in which to respond to them in a crisis.

  8. Identify characteristics of IDD, characteristics of mental health symptomology, and how to differentiate and recognize overlap of these conditions using a bio-psycho-social approach. 

  9. Identify which assessment tools are preferred for the IDD population and clinically relevant considerations when conducting mental health assessment

  10. Describe basic adaptations to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for people with IDD to increase engagement, comprehension, and retention in various therapeutic modalities.
