3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Please note this month's time change!
Many different intervention methodologies are used in supporting persons with I/DD who have problematic behaviors. The risk inherent in this is that interventions are managed separately, and may often be working at cross purposes, particularly with psychological and behavioral interventions. A strength of Positive Behavior Support is the ability to offer a means for bringing together different types of support.

In this presentation, Dr. Dan Baker, the Internal Reviewer and Positive Support Lead with the Jensen/Olmstead Quality Assurance and Compliance Office of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, offers a unified means for bringing together behavior support, mental health, and mental wellness support. Dr. Baker will use illustrative case studies to supplement the content.

In addition to his responsibilities with the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Dr. Baker provides clinical supervision for the Successful Life Project and is a part of the Disability Services Division Community Capacity Building Team. He was also an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at The Boggs Center on Developmental Disabilities, Rutgers University - Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
