Description

Making Claims that Matter: Non-behavioural Approaches to Supporting People with Intellecual Disability

The Living with Disability Research Centre and ASID are proud to present a one-day workshop with Professor Jennifer Clegg – Making Claims that Matter: Non-behavioural approaches to supporting people with intellectual disability. Professor Clegg has designed and taught an online module in the La Trobe graduate certificate of disability practice. The module is specifically concerned with practice with people with complex and challenging behaviour, and this workshop provides an introduction to some of the key ideas that inform the course. This one-day workshop will explore new approaches and new ideas for practitioners who work with people with intellectual disability and complex and challenging needs. The workshop will explore the latest research and practice into attachment and Trauma Informed care, through mediums such as videos, which show how interactions reveal attachment, and instruments that assess emotional development and levels of distress. As well as providing an alternative lens to understand challenging behaviour, the workshop will consider three issues that can impede conceptual creativity in supporting people with intellectual disability: neoliberalism, unconscious prototypes, and bright-siding.
