This ground-breaking mini course is based on the latest research and over 80 years of combined clinical experience
There has been considerable research showing that autistic people tend to experience higher levels of anxiety and depression than non-autistic people. We also know that anxiety and depression worsen autism, leading to more social withdrawal, less social enjoyment and more rigidity in thinking and behaviour. What are the reasons for these high levels of psychological problems and importantly, what do we do about it?
This ground-breaking short course is based on the latest research and over 80 years of combined clinical experience. Tony and Michelle explain our current understanding of why autistic people experience high levels of anxiety and depression. They then introduce the Emotion Repair Toolbox to assist autistic individuals, and their parents, carers, and the professionals to overcome mental health issues and improve their life outcomes.
