General Anxiety Disorder: A Behavioral Perspective to Addressing Anxiety when Providing Support to Persons with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Presented by ICPN Clinicians; Brian Morgan, BCBA & Mike Jersey, LPC

Studies reveal that in the general population, Anxiety Disorders may be as prevalent as 18.1%. Anxiety Disorders have been well documented in the Intellectual Disability (ID) population and studies estimate that these disorders may even be more prevalent in persons with intellectual disabilities (DM-ID-V2).
A common misconception held by many may be that the only way to treat Anxiety Disorders is through the use of pharmaceuticals. This presentation will not only provide an overview regarding the signs and symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder when supporting persons with intellectual disabilities but more importantly, we will discuss how caregivers may apply behavior analytic principles to improve the quality of life for people experiencing these signs and symptoms.

The Complexity of Working with Persons with Disabilities who Exhibit Self-Injurious Behaviors

Presented by Mollie Horner-King, BCBA

 

It can be challenging to support adults and children with intellectual disabilities who engage in self-injurious behaviors. Whether the self-harm is expressed through biting, hitting, banging, picking, or other behaviors, we must work as a team to develop and implement strategies that will ensure the safety and well-being of the person. Join ICPN clinicians as we provide an overview and definitions of SIB and relevant research. We will promote an understanding of the potential reasons for SIB and propose treatment strategies that may reduce the severity and frequency of this challenging behavior.

This training will be offered during two time-slots. Please choose ONE SESSION that works for you.

This is the Morning Session. View the Afternoon Session Registration Here.

 

Target Audience: Middle Management – residential services, day program services, support services, service coordinators, case management, and behavior team

A Discussion of Bipolar I and How it Can Affect People with Intellectual Disabilities

Presented by Mike Jersey, LPC

Bipolar I Disorder is a mood disorder characterized by episodes of mania and major depression. Often when we observe shifts in mood in the people we work with, Bipolar Disorder comes to mind. However, are these indeed the signs and symptoms of Bipolar Disorder or could these symptoms be better explained by learning history or other diagnoses and conditions? This presentation will provide an overview of the signs and symptoms of Bipolar I Disorder, but more importantly, we will discuss how this disorder presents in people with Intellectual Disabilities.

This training will be offered at two locations. Please choose ONE SESSION that works for you.

This is the Des Plaines Session. View the Rockford Session Registration Here.
