Individuals with ID often present with behavioral symptoms complicated by limited expressive language skills and undiagnosed medical conditions. Many training programs do not include focused study of individuals with ID, despite the fact that patients with ID will be seen by virtually every mental health practitioner. In this book, the authors present a framework for competent assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in individuals with ID.
Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability is a resource guide for psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and other prescribers treating patients with ID. It is a supplemental text for psychiatry residents, medical students, psychology graduate students, psychotherapists, counselors, social workers, behavior support specialists and nurses.

Residents receive longitudinal exposure to patients with chronic mental disorders, and a year of experience in outpatient child psychiatry. By the final year of the general psychiatry program, the resident has become a reliable therapist of many types of patients in varied settings. The goals of this year of training are to assimilate specialty skills and to pursue elective opportunities. Each R4 resident may serve three months as a Senior Resident Instructor, leading a clinical care team of junior residents and medical students.
A rotation in Forensic Psychiatry and an experience in Administrative Psychiatry are provided to all R4 residents. The community-based structure of the Department of Psychiatry allows residents to draw on the talents of an unusually large faculty.
Each training site has faculty members with the designated task of teaching residents. Dozens of community psychiatrists eagerly donate their time for supervision of residents' psychotherapy cases, and for elective rotations. The generous didactic schedule and conference series augments the on-site and off-site supervisory hours to provide a high ratio of teaching to clinical work. The faculty of award-winning teachers possesses a particular degree of expertise in the practice and teaching of psychotherapy.
