Dual-Diagnoses Webinar Series OverviewThe National Association for the Dually Diagnosed

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities may also have mental health and substance use issues that are overlooked. At the same time, traditional behavioral health resources and interventions don’t always take into account the unique needs of someone with I/DD.

Do you have the resources and information you need to support the individuals who rely on your services in the most person-centered and holistic ways?

The American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and NADD, an association for persons with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, are proud to partner together to offer this six-part webinar series that covers topics ranging from relaxation training for individuals with I/DD to supporting psychological resilience in staff.

Session Description

There is increasing recognition of the lack of resources and the need for supports for people with Intellectual Disabilities at risk of aberrant sexual expression. Offense specific treatment professionals with experience treating individuals with Intellectual Disabilities are in high demand and short supply. This webinar will focus on assessment and risk considerations of the individual. Development of effective assessment based safety and treatment interventions that can be implemented by support professionals in the community will be discussed.  Case examples will illustrate a variety of ethical and biopsychosocial issues.

Speaker

Marc Goldman was responsible for the design and programmatic implementation of one of the first treatment centers in the Midwest for people charged with criminal offences who had intellectual disabilities. He is currently in private practice, devoting most of his professional time to the assessment and treatment of people with intellectual disabilities at risk of engaging in a variety of challenging behavior. Marc works closely with support staff and collaborates with staff and administrators in development and evaluation of therapeutic interventions. He consults with various public and private agencies and serves as expert witness.
