Dr Michelle Gregory is a Clinical Psychologist working in the East Surrey Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities. Her work mainly involves working with people whose behaviour challenges those who support them and one to one therapy.
Her interests include: sexuality, autism, the lived experience of people with learning disabilities who have been adopted and fostered and inclusion in social spaces, both virtual and physical.
Trans-diagnostic treatment refers to an approach whereby the same underlying treatment principles are applied across diagnoses.
Here, Michelle Gregory looks at a pilot trial of trans-diagnostic cognitive behavioural therapy for a small group of people with mild learning disabilities who were in-patients in receipt of treatment for emotional difficulties.
