Promoting Happiness among Adults with Severe Disabilities: Evidence-based Strategies

From May Institute's Distinguished Lecture Series

Presenter: Dennis H. Reid, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Founder and Director Carolina Behavior Analysis and Support Center 

Description: Dr. Dennis Reid will describe strategies for promoting day-to-day happiness among adults who have severe disabilities. The presentation will stress the importance of daily happiness on overall quality of life and will discuss the notion of happiness as a private event that is amenable only to indirect assessment. Means of identifying and validating indices of happiness and unhappiness will be presented for use with individuals who have serious difficulty describing such events.

The presenter also will review observation methods for use in monitoring indices of happiness and unhappiness and evidence-based strategies for increasing happiness and decreasing unhappiness during daily routines. Periodic reference will be made to research providing the evidence base for the strategies discussed and when relevant, demonstrations will be conducted of selected strategies along with opportunities for attendee practice.
This workshop will be valuable to clinicians, managers, and supervisors working in community and human service settings with individuals across the lifespan. Program content is expected to be at the intermediate practice level.
