Building Therapeutic Environments

October 12, 2021

Therapeutic environments are the basis of ensuring everyone is safe and well cared for in any setting. But to take a step further, this concept encompasses understanding the impact our daily interactions have on providing psychosocial support to people with intellectual disabilities. By not engaging in thoughtful interactions, we can inadvertently create invalidating environments. During this workshop, we will discuss how we can provide simple strategies that will assist in supporting the physical, social, and psychological domains of one’s life through environmental interactions. The goal of this training is to enable the people we support to live their best lives while being fully supported by the environment around them. This can help eliminate unnecessary stressors for all, while making your agency more supportive by creating a culture of caring for not only persons with disabilities, but for staff, families, and the community.

Trauma Informed Care: Supporting Individuals with Developmental/Intellectual Disabilities

September 30, 2021

A person’s behavior is shaped and learned through their experiences and interactions with others in their environments. Challenging behaviors that are difficult to manage may emerge when that person’s behavior has been shaped by traumatic experiences. For people with developmental disabilities traumatic experiences may be hidden and only show signs of existence when challenging behavior emerges. This training will discuss trauma and how it may present in people diagnosed with developmental disabilities. Moreover, this training will discuss strategies for supporting people touched by traumatic experiences including current and relevant situations such as natural disasters and pandemics.
