We will explore a variety of supervision strategies to intervene and communicate around Neurodiversity. Lasting positive outcomes are rooted in changing how we think about pathology with Awareness, Acceptance, and Appreciation. This is an exploration of how we can enhance sustainability in the field, supervision, and practice with specific strategies to intervene and communicate with people experiencing neurodiverse crises. This includes strategies to enhance outcomes for those struggling with what we call psychosis, extreme moods, or other altered states of experience.

Learning Objectives: After taking part in this training, participants will be able to:

  • Enhance Sustainability in the field with supervision that embraces neuro-diversity and specific strategies to engage and intervene with neuro-divergent crisis, which includes what we call psychosis, extreme moods, or altered states of experience.
