The Nisonger RRTC team published a new paper called “Psychotherapy Treatment Outcome Research in Adults With ID: Where Do We Go From Here?” in the journal Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice:


Research on the treatment of mental health conditions in adults with intellectual disability (ID) has advanced over the last two decades.


The literature review found ways to improve future studies, such as including more details about participants and their mental health symptoms.


Overall, “individuals with ID have been largely excluded from participation in mental health treatment research” [and] “now is the time to include individuals with ID as key stakeholders in the development of well-designed studies through participatory action research.”
