Event description
This workshop explores ASD and mental ill-health, adaptive treatment planning, goal setting, and working with family and other supports.

About this Event

This 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 population. 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

• 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 an ASD

• Adapt treatment planning and set realistic goals for treatment

• Understand how to work systemically, involving family and other supports

• 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
