The School of Social and Community Services' Developmental Services Worker Program and Behaviour Science Program are delighted to be hosting a full-day workshop at Lakeshore Campus on June 1 with a highly respected psychiatrist in the field of Dual Diagnosis, Dr. John Chan!

How to Baffle & Then Appreciate a Psychiatrist: Deeper Perspectives on Dual Diagnosis

Individuals with intellectual disabilities are sometimes prone to complex psychiatric and behavioural challenges that require a multi-disciplinary approach. In this highly interactive workshop, Dr. Chan explores a complimentary relationship between psychiatry and applied behaviour analysis (ABA) through several case vignettes. Emphasis will be placed on assessing and conceptualizing clinical presentations while exploring and problem-solving these cases using biopsychosocial and behavioural strategy models.

This is a highly informative and interactive talk with focus on current evidence-based, best practice perspectives for individuals with dual diagnosis.

This workshop is geared mainly to professionals in the field who work as front-line staff and consultants in education, mental health and community services.
