SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Trauma Informed Support

October 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$150 – $190

Members $150/ Non Members $190

October 11th 10am-4pm


presented by Dr. Karyn Harvey

This workshop will provide a view of trauma from the perspective of the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. It will explore the sources of trauma, the effects of that trauma on both a biological and psychological level and the key ingredients for healing. Healing and case studies will be examined in depth. This is open to all participants on every level.

Dr. Karyn Harvey has worked as a clinician in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) for over 30 years. She has a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and a Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Psychology from the University of Maryland. Over her years of academic and professional development including valuable experience in direct support of individuals with ID/DD, she has come to recognize that psychologically supporting people with ID/DD must recognize the role that trauma plays in their behavioral issues and address the critical elements needed for their recovery from trauma (including safety, empowerment and connection).


Dr. Harvey consults with various state agencies and private organizations throughout the United States and Canada and trains staff on every level, trainers and clinicians on trauma-informed care.  She has published numerous articles about therapeutic interventions for persons with ID/DD and has written two books:  Positive Identity Development (including an addendum of practical Workbooks) and Trauma-Informed Behavioral Interventions.

Dr. Harvey’s current services include (virtually or live as conditions permit) direct onsite training, keynote speaking, presentation delivery, expert panel membership, podcast participation and webinar delivery.
