About this Event

This 2-day workshop will explore the features of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in young people and discuss common comorbid mental health conditions and associated complexity in working with this group. Clinicians will be provided with information relating to screening tools, engagement and treatment strategies.

At the completion of this workshop you will be able to:

• identify the features of ASD that may be present for a young person including social, communication, cognitive and sensory differences;

• be aware of screening tools and pathways for formal assessment;

• understand gender differences that can contribute to delayed diagnosis for girls and women;

• appreciate common interpersonal and vocational experiences of young autistic people and how this impacts on well being;

• formulate how ASD might predispose a young person to experience mental ill health & reflect on how symptoms might manifest differently for a young person with autism;

• adapt therapeutic engagement, case formulation, and treatment planning to be autism-friendly;

• understand the importance of involving family and other supports in treatment;

• be aware of suicide risk factors specific to autism and modify your approach to risk management;

• practice intervention skills through the use of ASD manual worksheets and other resources, on topics such as: understanding and managing intense emotions; assessing and working with sensory preferences; social and interpersonal interventions; vocation interventions; and

• utilise a range of resources to support your ongoing learning.
