Description

People with developmental disabilities are at increased risk for developing mental health problems across the lifespan, and treatment professionals often find it difficult to determine whether the behavior they are looking at is due to an underlying disability or a mental health problem - or both. This CE course provides an overview of dual diagnosis, focuses on the impact of dual diagnosis on family life, and explores treatment and support for people affected by dual diagnosis.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss suggested ways of supporting all children, including siblings of people with special needs, and maintaining a strong family life.

2. Enumerate the five principles that guide how to care for people with dual diagnosis.

3. Explain how Asperger’s disorder is different from classic autism.

4. Elucidate what a treatment plan should include.

5. Identify psychological risk factors that interact with life stressors and biological predispositions and reduce a person’s ability to cope with stressors and be resilient.

6. Describe the three major groups of symptoms related to bipolar disorder.
