Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Emotion Regulation

The workshop explains why adolescents and adults with ASD/Asperger's syndrome are more prone to develop mood disorders and also explains strategies that can help such individuals learn about and manage emotions. The Cognitive Behavior Therapy includes affective education and cognitive restructuring, i.e. improving the understanding of emotions and changing the way the person perceives and responds to emotions. The concept of an emotional toolbox is used to provide a greater range of strategies to manage feelings. (The Exploring Feelings activities from Tony Attwood and the CAT-KIT from Kirsten Callisen and coll. will be presented).
