People with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome often have difficulty understanding what they and those around them are feeling, which can make the world be a confusing and frustrating place. Misinterpretation of social and physical events can result in feelings of anxiety, sadness, and anger.
In this presentation, Dr. Tony Attwood teaches caregivers how to implement “cognitive behavior therapy.” This therapy works from the inside out. With a logical understanding of emotional triggers and responses, people can learn to recognize and control their emotions.
Topics covered: Assessing emotional needs; Avoiding and correcting misinterpretation of emotion; Building self-esteem and improving self-awareness; Managing anxiety, depression, and anger; Defining physical and social “tools”.
