Many people feel at a loss as to how to best provide support to individuals with a dual diagnosis (individuals with an Intellectual Disability and Autism with co-occurring mental health issues and challenging behaviors) to lead healthy, happy, and meaningful lives. The Capacity Building Institute (CBI) offers an in-depth learning opportunity to professionals across the entire service partnership, including direct support staff and supervisors, supports coordinators/case managers and supervisors, agency trainers, managed care organizations, behavior specialists, psychiatrists, professional counselors and therapists, and dual diagnosis treatment teams.
Directed by Gregory Cherpes, MD, ODP Medical Director, and Dr. Beth Barol, CBI brings together a select group of professionals to learn with a faculty of national experts and speakers. CBI training is presented by the Co-Directors of the Institute in conjunction with an array of highly experienced practitioners and innovators in the field.
Information on how to express interest in participating, session information, and requirements are identified in the invitation to apply.
The Capacity Building Institute will meet once a month for a two-day session beginning September 2023 and ending May 2024. Five sessions will be live and in-person, and four will be live and virtual. There is no option to attend virtually when the session is live and in-person.
