About This On-Demand Webinar Recording

Between the apparent increased incidence of autism spectrum disorders, as well as therapists’ general lack of understanding how to help people deal with issues related to them, it is no wonder why trainings for these problems are among the most sought after trainings.

This webinar will cover issues that are related to the experience of life on the autism spectrum: depression, bullying, stress, anger, aggression, anxiety, social skills deficits, low self-esteem, and limited social support.   People with ASD tend to have unique cognitive and behavioral styles, which vary with the severity of their ASD symptoms. Therefore, as with any client, we creatively adapt and adjust CBT to meet the strengths and needs of the individual. For example, people on the ASD spectrum are generally very concrete thinkers, so we need to modify standard CBT to be more experiential and concrete than usual. Individuals who are cognitively on the higher end of functioning may benefit from a mix of both cognitive and behavioral strategies, but when their functioning is more impaired, the therapist de-emphasizes cognitive techniques.

What You Will Learn

  • How to implement cognitive restructuring techniques to address those emotions and behaviors associated with ASD
  • How to utilize behavioral techniques to address those emotions and behaviors associated with ASD
  • How to apply the therapeutic system to produce long-term results
