This workshop will begin with a brief history of autism and current thinking about its cause. We will also look at the psychological theories that form the basis for our understanding of the condition and which provide insight into the differences in cognitive processing between neurotypicals and those with autism.
We will look at the issue of ‘diagnosis’, and mental health issues associated with autism such as anxiety. We will also consider helpful and unhelpful approaches to therapy and counselling with examples from case histories.
In the latter part of the day we will have time for case discussions in both smaller groups and the whole group. Jenny will be on hand to facilitate the smaller groups where required and will also facilitate the feedback discussion at the end.
Delegates should be prepared, where possible, to bring a case history to discuss where their client has or is thought to have autism and which they are finding problematic. There will be one case history discussed per small group, two if time allows.
There will be Q&A opportunities throughout the day. This workshop is suitable for all therapists working with clients of any age with autism (or suspected autism) as well as those who are interested in finding out more about working with this issue in therapy.
