Live IN-PERSON event

Austism in the therapy room

Autism in the Therapy Room

Adapt your therapy practice to work successfully with clients on the autism spectrum with the help of this highly-rated, full-day, experiential course.

Roughly 1% of the population is thought to be on the spectrum but we believe 10-20% of your clients are likely to be in this group. These people are much more likely than average to need mental health support with anxiety, depression and suicidality. Most formal training programmes don’t touch on this subject despite growing numbers of adults, especially women, seeking and receiving diagnosis and looking for support. This day course will help you adapt your practice for autism in the therapy room.

This hands-on, practical day will equip you to:

  • Understand more deeply what it’s like to be on the autism spectrum
  • Build a relationship of trust with autistic clients
  • Adapt your practice to work effectively and compassionately with each unique autistic client
  • Understand the overlap of autism and trauma
  • Consider how you can best help your autistic clients build self-esteem
