Description

Community Living Assn. & WWILD SVP Assn. are offering a training workshop for professionals, support workers and social work/psychology and human services students who are interested in improving their knowledge and skills in supporting people with intellectual and learning disabilities experiencing mental health issues and disorders.

The aim of the workshop is to improve people’s understanding of the lived experience of intellectual disabilities and mental health disorders/ issues, and appropriate support of these people experiencing dual disability. It utilises the bio-psycho-social and community-based mental health model to support people experiencing dual disability.

Topics covered include:

Developing knowledge of the lived experience of Intellectual Impairment/Disability

Good communication when supporting people with intellectual disabilities

The experience of mental illness for People with Intellectual Disabilities

Appropriate community mental health response and support of people with dual disability in terms of prevention, early intervention, crisis response and recovery approaches.
