Dual-Diagnoses Webinar Series OverviewThe National Association for the Dually Diagnosed

One year ago, ANCOR and NADD partnered together to host a multi-part webinar series on dual diagnoses. The unprecedented attendance in the series made us realize there has been a hunger for these sessions, as agencies and staff seek out the most compassionate and effective approaches to support a person who is dually-diagnosed with I/DD and mental health needs.

This February 2018, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and NADD, an association for persons with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, are proud to partner again to offer another multi-part webinar series, building on the feedback from last year’s series.

In February and March, we will host five webinars that will discuss: supporting individuals at risk of challenging sexual behaviors, trauma-informed care, role of the interdisciplinary team in mental health assessments, emotional regulation, and grief treatment.

Webinars are open to everyone, but ANCOR and NADD members can register at a significant discount. Multiply your savings by registering for the entire series and receive an additional 20% off!

Session Description

This webinar will begin by introducing the audience to multiple processes associated with emotion regulation. First, we will review the Modal Model of Emotion Generation (Gross, 2010) which highlights four essential elements of emotions. Next, we will explore Gross’ Process Model of Emotion of Emotion Regulation. The webinar will then review some of the challenges that individuals with dual-diagnosis (including ASD) experience related to (a) regulating emotions and (b) learning/generalizing more adaptive strategies. The final part of this presentation will explore how various therapeutic models specifically address the emotion regulation and necessary accommodations for individuals with dual-diagnosis.
