Autism Awareness Workshop for Counsellors and Listening Professionals

Autism Awareness Workshop for Counsellors and Listening Professionals at Plymouth MIND

This workshop is aimed at counsellors and people who ‘listen’ as part of their work and who may benefit from knowing more about adults with autism, particularly high functioning autism (often referred to as Asperger Syndrome). The workshop will help attendees understand the condition and the emphasis will be on developing skills and strategies to help us work better with adults with autism and/or those who care, work or live with them.
