Presenter: Joan C. Dasteel, MSW, PhD
The focus of this presentation will be to illustrate issues in treating adults who have developmental disabilities including learning disorders, mental retardation, Autism Spectrum, Aspergers Syndrome and Down Syndrome. Both psychodynamic and cognitive approaches will be illustrated. The purpose of this presentation is to educate psychotherapists about the special needs adults. It will offer suggestions about ways to communicate with these challenged adults as well as ways to maximize their ability to achieve independence and to live within their communities. The presenter will share material from her personal and professional experiences. A visit to L.A. GOAL will be arranged for any student or other professional who is interested. L.A. GOAL staff and members were instrumental in the production of “I am Sam”. Dr. Dasteel is a doctoral graduate of the Sanville Institute.
