Full Day Training October 7, 2022 with Ongoing Trainings Every Friday 11 a.m. – 1 pm through Dec 16, 2022.
The goal of this training is to build on existing provider expertise and expand confidence and competence in working with clients with intellectual and developmental disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The training will cover core components of evidence-based practices for youth mental health such as effective assessment, treatment planning, culturally relevant care, and strategies for depression, anxiety, and trauma. Examples will be presented of adaptations of commonly used interventions which use visually based learning, use of structure and routine, support for sensory needs, and strategies to support effective behavior. Training sessions will include didactic presentations of specific tools and strategies, case presentations utilizing those skills, lived experience perspectives, and opportunities for questions, discussion and continued learning.
