Training Overview Description

Positive Identity Development is an exciting new approach to working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This strengths-based strategy rejects reducing adults with disabilities to a compilation of their behaviors and instead nurtures each individual’s sense of identity. This webinar will outline the tools and constructs of Positive Identity Development, allowing psychologists, social workers, and therapists to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment they currently provide for this population
