Adapted Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Youth with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities October 2020
In this series, research will be presented that demonstrates the extraordinarily high rates of abuse, neglect and trauma experienced by individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).  Factors that contribute to this population’s vulnerability will be discussed, as well as reasons why they are less likely to spontaneously recover from traumatic stress.  Trauma assessment techniques and tools will be presented, and clinical symptoms of traumatic stress and characteristics of IDD will be compared and contrasted.  Cultural considerations, as they relate to people with disabilities, will be discussed, as well as factors that enhance therapist’s cultural competency.  An in-depth phase-oriented trauma treatment model will be presented, based on Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (Cohen, Mannarino & Deblinger, 2004).  Adaptations to trauma treatment, working with caregivers, care coordination, systems of care, and therapist vicarious trauma will be integrated in the context of treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the extremely high rates of abuse, neglect, and trauma that people with disabilities suffer, and learn of the factors that contribute to their vulnerability.
  2. Identify trauma assessment techniques that help clinicians with diagnostic overshadowing and differentiating diagnoses.
  3. Define and practice components of phase-oriented trauma treatment and the adaptations to this model for individuals with IDD.
  4. Determine how to incorporate therapist and caregiver resilience into trauma treatment in the presence of vicarious trauma.   

Modality, Dates and Times:
This training will consist of 9 total hours of instruction over the course of the series. Each session will be 1.5 hours in length. Participants must complete all sessions in the series to receive credit. Participants must also commit to the 7-follow-up consultation meeting that will occur after the trauma series as well. This is a live interactive virtual training via ZOOM video conferencing platform.
