Understanding and Working with People on the Autistic Spectrum

About the workshop

This three-hour workshop is designed as an introduction to working with people on the Autistic Spectrum. It will offer a general overview of the main traits, how they impact on everyday life and ways in which counselling may help. The nature of Autism and how it is perceived has led to many becoming isolated with high rates of co-morbidity. The aim of the workshop is to help de-mistify some of the preconceptions and enable the participant to feel more able to work with someone on the Autistic Spectrum.

Who is it for?

Training is aimed at students and counsellors, teachers, support workers, family and anyone who works or interacts with people on the Autistic Spectrum.

What will I do on this workshop?

The workshop will offer a mixture of didactic training, group discussion and experiential exercises. Space will be given for personal reflection on thoughts, preconceptions and possible prejudice around Autism. Alongside this there will be an opportunity to learn and practice tools that may be helpful in the counselling environment.
