Intervening with Youth with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities Who have Experienced Trauma
August 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDTFree
This training will focus on individual and systems-level interventions for youth where Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) are present at the same time as a history of traumatic stress. Specific techniques will be discussed, including Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT) as it is currently the model with the most research scrutiny for this population. Different types of traumatic stress (e.g., PTSD vs. Developmental Trauma Disorder) will be reviewed, as well as why these differentiations are especially important with youth where trauma and IDD are present together.
