The Office of Developmental Programs invites you to save the date for the 2022 Virtual Everyday Lives Conference. The Everyday Lives Conference is a statewide event that presents pertinent information to individuals with a disability and/or autism, their families, and the professionals that support them in an effort to empower individuals to live their ideal everyday life.

Read the full article, including dates of the events.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) invites professionals across the service partnership to apply for the Capacity Building Institute. The Capacity Building Institute (CBI) aims to help professionals gain the skills necessary to support individuals with a dual diagnosis — intellectual disability with co-occurring mental health issues, and challenging behaviors.

Who?

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.

What?

Training topics include overviews of the following selected topics:

  • One-page descriptions:
    • Healing lifestyle and social therapy;
    • Biographical timelines;
    • The impact of trauma;
    • Psychotherapeutic interventions, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and biofeedback;
    • Psychopharmacology and diagnosis;
    • Creative and expressive therapies; and
    • Functional Behavioral Analysis.

Where?

CBI will be held on the Zoom platform. Participants must have access to a computer, camera, and microphone.

When?
The deadline to submit the CBI Year 6 Interest Survey is February 18, 2022. 2022–2023 CBI two-day session dates are as follows:

  • 5/5/22–5/6/22
  • 6/2/22–6/3/22
  • 7/21/22–7/22/22
  • 9/8/22–9/9/22
  • 10/13/22–10/14/22
  • 11/17/22–11/18/22
  • 12/8/22–12/9/22
  • 1/12/23–1/13/23
  • 2/9/23–2/10/23

Why?

Current best practices and supportive models that have shown to be most helpful are sometimes beyond the reach of people who work directly with individuals with a dual diagnosis. CBI addresses these issues from an individual and systemic level through training, integration of knowledge into practice, and opportunities to build a statewide cohort to work together to effect change and build capacity. The participants will share individual best practice experiences leading to recommendations to the Office of Developmental Programs and Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services to facilitate a more effective delivery of services across systems.

How?

Whether you are applying as an individual or as part of a County Team, each person must separately complete the CBI Year 6 Interest Survey by 2/18/22 to express interest and confirm their ability to attend all sessions. There are a limited number of spaces available for participants. Separate email notification will be sent out to those people invited to attend the 2022–2023 sessions.
