Psychologist Training Day: Working with People with Dual Disabilities in Mental Health: challenges of ID and Personality Disorder


This one-day interactive professional development session is specifically for psychologists across the NEVIL cluster.  It will look at the issues for psychologists working therapeutically with clients who have developmental disability (ASD/ID) and features of personality disorder.  Theoretical sessions will be followed by a workshop and discussion of complex de-identified cases.

The following will be addressed: the clinical features and the key principles of working with a person with these diagnoses; the clinical application of these principles; issues of risk; and the development of a relevant management plan.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will:

·         Increase understanding of how to work therapeutically with people who have developmental disability and features of personality disorder.

·         Understand risk issues and management of risk in this population

·         Increase confidence in the development of a behaviour support plan to assist with the management of these risks.
