Introduction to CBT with people with learning disabilities and lower ability

Presented by Professor Dave Dagnan

About the event

This Masterclass webinar will be hosted on Zoom.  A recording of the webinar will be available for delegates to view for 28 days after the live event.

A certificate of attendance will be issued for 1.5 hours CPD (live attendance only).

In this webinar we will look at -
- the characteristics and recognition of people with learning disability and consider how this differs from similar concepts such as learning difficulty

- the epidemiology of learning disability and identify that a surprisingly high proportion of people in mainstream services might benefit from the types of adaptation that benefit people with learning disabilities

- the evidence base for CBT with people with learning disabilities with depression and anxiety

- the adaptation of structured assessments and therapy for people with learning disabilities and lower ability


We will finish with an overview of an evidence-based, manualised guided self-help and behavioural activation intervention for people with learning disabilities that has an associated introductory training and all materials accessible on the e-lfh website (https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/intellectual-disability-and-depression-talking-therapies/).
