Event description

Description


Dr. Karyn Harvey has worked in the field of intellectual disabilities for over 25 years. In that time she’s published two books, as well as numerous articles, on therapeutic interventions for individuals with IDD. Positive Identity Development: An Alternative Treatment Approach for Individuals with Mild and Moderate Intellectual Disabilities (2009) covers topics on theory and guidance for clinicians utilizing therapy for individuals with ID. Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions: What Works and What Doesn’t (2012) presents a trauma-informed care approach to working with individuals with ID both programmatically and clinically.

Karyn will take us on a day journey to explore the definitions of
trauma, symptoms of trauma and recovery models as they relate to
Individuals with Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities and their care
givers and support workers. Karyn will introduce methodologies and techniques
that can be incorporated into personal practice when planning, co-ordinating, administrating
and direct support with Individuals with Developmental and
Intellectual Disabilities.
