James Clay, PhD/Psychologist
Nearly unheard of in people diagnosed as Severe or Profound ‘I/DD,’ this diagnosis (and sinister cousin, Psychopathy) is increasingly seen in individuals with Borderline to Moderate levels of intellectual disabilities. People experiencing this diagnosis, or psychopathy, are often perceived as a great threat to their communities, and to their staff. It is critical that staff have a basic understanding of this disorder to access early treatment and harm reduction strategies. The nature of the disorder and how to recognize conduct problems early, when they remain treatable, will be discussed. Risk mitigation and behavioral treatment recommendations will also be offered. This course is likely beneficial for direct care staff, self-advocates, program managers, case managers and many others who support our ‘I/DD’ population.
