This workbook is a companion to Mental Health Approaches to Intellectual/Developmental Disability: A Resource for Trainers and is designed to be given to all trainees. The Trainee Workbook contains copies of all slides that will be used in your training, but does not include text explaining the slides. That information will be provided by your trainer. The Trainee Workbook does include space for you to record your own notes about the material. Each training module includes a pre-test to be taken prior to the training and a post-test to be taken after the training.
The Resource for Trainers and the Trainee Workbook provide training concerning the field of support for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) and mental health concerns. The material is arranged in ten modules. It is unlikely that a single training session would attempt to cover all modules.
Module I: What Is a Dual Diagnosis?
Module II: Building on the Basics: Understanding Assessment Practices in Dual Diagnosis
Module III: Mental Health Evaluations
Module IV: Signs and Symptoms of Mental Illness
Module V: From DM-ID to DM-ID-2
Module VI: Support Strategies
Module VII: Adapting Therapy for People with IDD
Module VIII: Childhood and Adolescence
Module IX: Aging
Module X: Inter-Systems Collaboration
As mentioned, the Trainee Workbook is a companion to the Resource for Trainers. The Resource for Trainers includes copies of the slides, extensive information about the content in the slides, and references for further study. In addition to preparing a trainer to offer workshops on topics concerning mental health and intellectual/developmental disability, the Resource for Trainers can be used for individual study or as a reference guide.
