Event Details

"EMDR for people with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism" presented by Caroline Fuidge 

(morning session)   3 CPD points applied for

People with Austistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) enter into the mental health services with a range of psychological needs.  It is common to have experienced difficulty with bullying, depression and anxiety.  The rigidity of thinking patterns can sometimes make other types of psychological therapy difficult to grasp.  We know that EMDR can be helpful for trauma, depression and anxiety.  With some modification to the protocol it can equally be helpful for people with ASD.  

Within the workshop we will  review the common areas of difficulty for this client, reflecting upon why modification is necessary to the protocol.  Consideration will then be given to each phase of the protocol to identify potential modifications to aid the client to engage and process with EMDR.  Small group work is encouraged to reflect upon your experiences working with client group and clinical case discussion will be encouraged to enable application to your practice.  

 Learning objectives for this workshop are: 

 -  To have a greater understanding of ASD 

-   To identify areas of the protocol that may require adaptation to support client needs

-   To improve confidence of working with clients with ASD and EMDR
