The autistic spectrum is a broad umbrella incorporating such terms as ‘Asperger’s Syndrome’, ‘Autism’, ‘High Functioning Autism’ and ‘Autistic spectrum disorder’. Many children and adults who have diagnoses within the spectrum are able to attend mainstream schools, colleges and workplaces, yet they can experience a great deal of confusion , anxiety and isolation in any social setting. Many adults struggling in their lives generally and in relationships, have never had their Autism recognised or assessed. This study day will focus on the autistic thinking style and how this impacts on everyday living and in particular on the counselling relationship. Time will be given to input/discussion, experiential processing and discussion of case work where desirable by participants.
