    University Center Webb Room

    Faculty member, Dr. Ginny Focht-New, presents Therapeutic Relationships: Working with the Most Vulnerable People

    Using therapeutic approaches with people who have limited communication and/or labels that minimize a persons capacity, such as an Intellectual/Developmental Disability, can seem like a challenge.  Principles of therapy apply to everyone and at the same time therapeutic approaches must evolve based on the person.  A range of therapeutic approaches will be presented that could benefit: individuals, couples, and groups and people with limited verbal communication.  A number of examples will be offered.


    This program is designed to help the attendee . . .

    1. Recognize the value of therapy for vulnerable people.

    2. Describe the therapeutic principles that are used for everyone and especially vulnerable persons.

    3. Explain steps to take to engage people with limited communication in therapeutic relationships.

    4. Advocate for what a person might benefit from therapeutically.
