Psychopharmacology Controversies in Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities

This course discusses the widespread use of antipsychotic drugs to manage unwanted behaviors (rather than for psychotic disorders) in people with intellectual or developmental disabilities and the controversial issues surrounding this practice. In the first part of this video presentation, Ann Desnoyers Hurley presents data from a range of national and international studies documenting the prevalence of using psychopharmaceutical drugs to manage behavior in people with IDD, arguing that there is little proof that they are effective in doing so. In the second part of the conference session, Dr. Andrew Levitas explores the history of antipsychotic drugs, explains how they work, and shows us the neurological mechanisms and triggers that cause them to produce a wide variety of side effects. This course provides information about the MEDS scale for monitoring the side effects of antipsychotic drugs in a population with intellectual disabilities, and presents a model for tapering individuals off antipsychotic drugs.
