        • Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions: What Works ...

          Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions: What Works and What Doesn't outlines the ways in which some individuals with IDD may have been harmed by a failure to consider problem behaviors as trauma responses that cannot be modified through the application of consequences.

          With numerous case studies, the author describes exploring past traumas and successful strategies for stabilization, prevention, and intervention. This book provides insights on  how to support people who have experienced large and small-scale traumas. She provides examples of "mental health plans" and illustrates how the plans should be written to ensure optimal implementation.

          This book gives the professionals and paraprofessionals a trauma-informed paradigm within which to support people with IDD and to establish the critical elements needed for their recovery from trauma.
