Recognising and responding to clients with autism and asperger's syndrome
The workshop provides an overview of the autistic spectrum and an understanding of the diagnostic criteria for people that work and care for those with autism and aspergers. Rachel will share a number of case studies exploring common difficulties for this client group, particularly around key issues such as low mood, anxiety, socialising, and forming relationships. She will also look at the types of therapeutic interventions that can be helpful when working with this client group, as well as considering forms of available support. Focus will be given to the impact on carers and those in relationships with Autistic and Asperger's clients who may also present individually as clients.
Tickets available on Eventbrite.
