The next event
The next seminar is on Saturday 3 November and is on the subject of:
Autism in the Therapy Room: How best to support clients who struggle to relate to those around them.
What is the seminar about?
Working with clients who do not find it easy to express their thoughts and feelings can be challenging for a therapist. People with autism often have problems when relating to others; struggling to interpret behaviours and actions of others making it difficult to know how to respond appropriately to family, friends and colleagues. Often leading to or related to internalising problems such as anxiety, depression, somatic complaints and excessive rumination
Ruth Williams will help delegates to recognise when they may be working with clients who display traits of Autism and explore ways in which practitioners can equip themselves to better support these clients and their family members.
Ruth is a therapist, trainer and supervisor with many years’ experience of supporting people on the autistic spectrum. She also has personal experience of living with family members with autistic spectrum conditions. Over the past few years she has been providing quality training courses for therapists, families and healthcare professionals to better equip them to understand and support people with autism.
Attendees will be invited to consider how to apply the learning to their own professional setting as counsellor, psychotherapist, coach, professional or mental health worker.
