Mental health and emotional wellbeing for children and adults with severe and profound learning/intellectual disabilities and PMLD.
In this workshop we will explore the meaning of emotional wellbeing, it’s multi-faceted nature and what this means for how we can best support people with severe and profound intellectual disabilities with a range of strategies and approaches.
You will be introduced to a framework for assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating for emotional wellbeing promotion, that has been specifically designed for this group of the population.
The approaches and strategies that you will learn about are based on the latest research evidence and what science tells us about how we can all most effectively take care of our emotional wellbeing and mental health.
