Habilitation clients are creating a framework for recovery for the first time. Many deficits in the areas of knowledge, critical thinking, values, and emotional literacy are present. Constructing a recovery plan requires psycho-education, role playing, testing, building social support, treating institutionalization, and a clear model of care for core clinical issues (e.g., power and control, excitement, crisis, and chaos, rigid defense mechanisms, emotional manipulation, social support etc.). This session focuses on aspects unique to this particular client and strategies to facilitate emotional growth in recovering.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will learn the knowledge, skills, and attitude model.
  • Participants will be able to apply a hopefulness approach to problem solving.
  • Practice a framework that addresses the many aspects of “arrested development.”
  • Identify a list of core clinical issues and how to address these issues.
