Stress looks different for everyone. How individuals recognize and deal with stress is an important part in living a healthy life. In this webinar, your presenters will discuss what different types of stress look like, how to discuss stress with the person you are caring for and strategies to reduce and react to stress.
Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities are more likely to develop a Psychiatric Disorder than the general population. Kimberly Newcombe and Jessica Hurst will discuss why correct diagnosis can be difficult, risk factors that lead to Psychiatric Disorders, what to look for in the person you are caring for and how to discuss concerns with doctors and other professionals. The goal of this presentation is to provide an in depth look at the different Psychiatric Disorders to support those caring for individuals by teaching ways to advocate and obtain the correct treatment to ensure quality of life.
Behavior can be very confusing. Sometimes it looks like it happens for no reason at all! As behavior consultants, Michelle Richey and Sabrina Starr know that there is motivation and reasoning behind every behavior.
