The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) announced the publication of a new issue of Positive Approaches Journal, written by and for professionals who provide supports and services to individuals with mental and behavioral health challenges, intellectual disabilities, autism, and other developmental disabilities. This issue’s theme is “Rights, Risks, and Restrictions.”
“Data Discoveries,” a feature of Positive Approaches, spotlights useful data presented in ways that are interesting and customizable. “Data Discoveries” will feature a word cloud of thoughts and phrases pertinent to the theme of “Rights, Risks, and Restrictions.” In an effort to learn more about your perceptions of how rights, risks, and restrictions are perceived in the community, the editorial board of Positive Approaches asks for your participation in a brief online survey exploring the words or phrases you feel correspond with these concepts, as they relate to work, experiences, and priorities.
The Positive Approaches Journal is published quarterly. For additional information, please submit inquiries/comments via email.
