Merchandise Description

Authors:  Sharon McGilvery, PhD and Darlene Sweetland, PhD

With the release of this book, Drs. McGilvery and Sweetland share decades of experience working with individuals diagnosed with an intellectual disability and co-occurring psychiatric disorders. Their well-practiced approach takes into account the extremely complex nature of working with dual-diagnosis. The authors provide in-depth information about the diagnostic process, hands-on treatment considerations, and their experience training thousands of people to work passionately with these individuals. An important contribution is their approach to addressing complicating factors in identifying appropriate psychiatric diagnoses, as well as the problem of the underreporting of psychiatric symptoms and disorders. Finally, those working in a variety of contexts with these individuals will benefit from the innovative approaches of looking at treatment and intervention strategies that can be immediately implemented.
