Therapeutic Interaction Strategies

This course discusses interaction strategies you can use to promote mental wellness and provide social support for individuals dually diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental illness. Today’s culture sends out confusing messages about the world, social roles, and emotional life. It does not do very well teaching people things they really need to know. It is often up to direct support providers to provide more accurate and useful information about what the world is like and to model healthier ways of relating to others and getting needs met. This course provides some simple and practical interaction strategies designed to promote emotional health. Strategies are discussed for: teaching people about the world, meeting personal needs, relaxation, building friendships, and (for support staff) responding to challenging situations. This is a video presentation from the 30th annual conference of the National Association for the Dually Diagnosed in October 2013, given by Dan Baker, PhD and Michelle Mead, MA, LAC from the Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, Department of Pediatrics, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
