This training will provide participants with an introductory understanding of how neurocognitive impairments commonly experienced by persons labeled with psychiatric disabilities can impact on functional success and define the need for supports. Executive function, one aspect of cognition, has been shown to be a predictor of community living success for persons labeled with psychiatric disabilities Evidence-based approaches to addressing these neurocognitive impairments have been developed to minimize the impact of these impairments on daily life These approaches included both remediation of the neurocognitive deficit itself and those that offer environmental/task compensatory/adaptive strategies. Given the nature and design of the FSP, this training will focus on the later as compensatory/adaptive strategies. Common neurocognitive impairments will be reviewed and matched with specific support strategies will be identified. Participants will also do problem solving around ways to support clients labeled with psychiatric disabilities who are also experiencing cognitive disruptions.
