As therapists we are beginning to see more clients coming into therapy having experienced many years of difficulties with social interaction and communication, as well as problems sustaining relationships and employment. This can contribute to a history of poor mental health and result in complex post traumatic stress, but do we ever consider that these clients may be autistic.

Workshop Details 

Autism is regularly misdiagnosed as childhood trauma, emotionally unstable personality disorder or and mistaken for other mental health conditions. It is important that as practitioners we develop a good understanding of autism so that we are more able to recognise when a client may be on the autistic spectrum. The workshop will explain what autism is and its presentation and how it links with co-associated conditions. We will share case studies and offer some strategies for working with this client group. This is an interactive workshop in which the presenters will encourage participation and questions.
