June 1st, 2018 | Centre for Entrepreneurship - G Commons (Building G) Lakeshore Campus at Humber College

Session Description:

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.

Event Ticket Cost: $90 per person, $50 for Humber Students
