One year ago, ANCOR and NADD partnered together to host a multi-part webinar series on dual diagnoses. The unprecedented attendance in the series made us realize there has been a hunger for these sessions, as agencies and staff seek out the most compassionate and effective approaches to support a person who is dually-diagnosed with I/DD and mental health needs.
This February 2018, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and NADD, an association for persons with developmental disabilities and mental health needs, are proud to partner again to offer another multi-part webinar series, building on the feedback from last year’s series.
In February and March, we will host five webinars that will discuss: supporting individuals at risk of challenging sexual behaviors, trauma-informed care, role of the interdisciplinary team in mental health assessments, emotional regulation, and grief treatment.
Webinars are open to everyone, but ANCOR and NADD members can register at a significant discount. Multiply your savings by registering for the entire series and receive an additional 20% off!

There appears to be increasing interest in supports for people with Intellectual Disabilities at risk of aberrant sexual expression. Those committed to providing such supports are tasked with designing, implementing, and maintaining interventions that provide for safety as well as treatment. Although this is done on a daily basis for non-offending individuals, the risks are often significantly higher for this group. This Webinar will describe specific safety and treatment supports that increase the likelihood of reaching the goal of “No more victims.” The need for assisting the individual to create and maintain an enriched quality of life rather than one void of choice, relationships, vocational, and recreational opportunities will be emphasized. Specific assessment guided supports designed to decrease the likelihood of reoffending and treatment supports implemented by staff will be described.
Marc Goldman was responsible for the design and programmatic implementation of one of the first treatment centers in the Midwest for people charged with criminal offences who had intellectual disabilities. He is currently in private practice, devoting most of his professional time to the assessment and treatment of people with intellectual disabilities at risk of engaging in a variety of challenging behavior. Marc works closely with support professionals. He collaborates with staff and administrators in development and evaluation of therapeutic interventions. He consults with various public and private agencies and serves as expert witness.
