Emotional Management for Children and Teens with ASD – Cairns QLD 15th November 2019

Children and adolescents with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have difficulty with the comprehension, expression and regulation of emotions, resulting in high levels of anxiety, stress, anger and/or depression and subsequent effects on family, teachers, friends and peers. Conventional strategies that encourage emotion management for typical children do not seem to be as effective with those who have an ASD. The child’s quality of life, self-esteem and well-being will be influenced by their ability to manage emotions and difficulties with emotion management can lead to being suspended and having a notoriety that will affect the attitude of teachers and peers as well as the attitude of the child to themselves. Through several decades of working with children and adolescents with ASD and their families and schools, Michelle and Tony have discovered, developed and evaluated emotion management strategies based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy that have proven to be effective in assisting children with ASD to learn about, and manage, their emotions from anxiety to love and affection.

“A wonderful workshop given by Tony and Michelle. It was amazing how much they covered in 2 days. The level of detail was perfect; including research details, applied approaches and then personal stories so that we could all identify with the case study. They both have such a wonderful open and kind approach that it is hard not to come away inspired and invigorated with ideas of how to help our wonderful ASD people.” Attendee, Master Class 2018

Minds & Hearts provides professional services and training specifically for Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism.

Minds & Hearts was conceived to meet the enormous need for services specifically tailored for people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC), and to increase knowledge and awareness about these conditions.

"For a few decades now, we've believed that for every girl on the autism spectrum, there are four boys," said Dr Michelle Garnett, a Brisbane clinical psychologist who specialises in autism diagnoses. "We now think the ratio is one girl to every two boys. That's many more girls than first thought."
