Anxiety and Depression in Adults with IDD: Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Applications (Kelly Hsieh, PhD and Haleigh Scott, PhD)

Register

Depression and anxiety are the most frequent mental disorders in adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). People with IDD may experience more life events due to different living circumstances and limited coping skills. Dr. Hsieh will present current research on risk factors of depression and anxiety and Dr. Scott will provide clinical strategies to help adults with IDD to manage depression and anxiety by improving coping skills to reduce stressors.  This webinar is hosted by The Arc and made possible  through the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Developmental Disabilities and Health (RRTCDD), United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Community Living (ACL), National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), Grant # 90RT5020-01-00.
