    About this event: 

    As more people are being diagnosed with autism and awareness of autism increases, psychotherapists find that more clients are, in one way or another, dealing with the condition. Some examples, include:

    • Autistic adults without any support service
    • Clients wondering if they are autistic
    • Clients who may show traits of autism
    • Clients trying to support a family member who is autistic
    • Clients dealing with an undiagnosed loved one

    Many psychotherapy trainings focus on the issues facing non-autistic (neurotypical) clients, and it can be difficult for the practitioner to adapt and find the most helpful position from which to help the autistic client.

    This workshop will focus helping participants gain a basic understanding of autism and explore how a different approach is necessary when receiving an autistic client.

    The workshop will have three parts, each lasting approximately 90 minutes.

    Part 1 will present an overview of autism. This will be lecture format with plenty of stops for questions and discussion.

    Part 2 will narrow the focus to introducing a way of understanding autism from a broadly psychoanalytic perspective, drawing inspiration from Winnicott and Lacan. The format will be similar to Part 1.

    Part 3 will take be conducted as a peer supervision session with participants encouraged to bring client material, so that we can examine it in the light of the concepts presented in Parts 1 and 2.
