[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

Despite calls for community integration for many years, many children and adults continue to live in residential facilities, including group homes, institutions and other large residential facilities. Such settings are highly challenging to work in due to the large numbers of individuals served in one setting; staffing issues; under funding; focusing on crisis management rather than prevention; and inadequate oversight of services. This webinar reviews recent research on staff training in residential facilities that offers a partial solution to some of these problems. Interventions reviewed training staff to conduct positive behavioral supports, person centered planning, applied behavior analysis, mindfulness. The webinar concludes with practitioner guidelines.

 

Learning Objectives:

Participants will describe the
1.  Extent of residential services for individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities;  
2. Characteristics of these populations;
3. Current research on training staff to conduct positive behavioral supports, person centered planning, applied behavior analysis and mindfulness; and
4. Implications for practice.
