30th October @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This three-session CPD course will take place on Oct 30th, Nov 20th, and Dec 11th.

This course is designed to offer the opportunity to explore the impact on life when a family member identifies/is identified as autistic. We will open a space for dialogue and exploration to consider the unique impact on each of our personal relationships and lives. We will look at issues of grief, loss, and the spectre of othering. Using the Relational TA principles and practice I will present a new three-stage developmental model with which to understand autism and its personal meanings:

• a dawning awareness
• hiding and shame
• living alongside

These workshops are open to practitioners, either in a personal or closely connected professional capacity. By drawing from personal and clinical examples we will bring life to this model.
