Part 1 of Understanding Emotional Regulation In ASD
Monday, 04 June 2012, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
This workshop is open to parent/caregivers whose child is a clinical client of the Geneva Centre for Autism.
Does your child appear to have lots of energy? Does your child seem to have a low frustration tolerance? Does their behaviour escalate quickly? Does your child often avoid activities or situations? Is the expression of emotions difficult for your child? If you have responded ‘yes’ to the above questions, then this may be the workshop for you.
This two-part workshop looks at anger and anxiety and the effect these emotions have in the lives of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Participants are given information on a variety of tools to assess levels of arousal and stress as well as strategies used to teach individuals to manage their emotions.
For the second part of the workshop participants are divided into two groups; one to learn about early emotional regulation skills (i.e., behavioural strategies) and one to learn about more advanced emotional regulation skills (i.e., cognitive behavioural strategies) required for adolescence and adulthood.
