Thursday, 24 Mar 2016

No Text
This new half-day seminar aims to explore the impact of stress and anxiety in autism and to discuss ways to equip autistic people, families and professionals with the tools to identify and deal with it.

High levels of stress and anxiety are known to be a major factor in determining quality of life and other outcomes in individuals and families affected by autism and it is important to understand the nature of this, and how it can be prevented and effectively managed.

This seminar will focus on the underlying theories of stress in autism, and will include a first-hand account, and practical strategies.

Who should attend: health, social care, and education professionals, parents/carers, and people on the autism spectrum.
Richard Mills
Research Director at Research Autism, and Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Psychology, University of Bath
Joe Powell
Director of All Wales People First, a national learning disabilities advocacy group, diagnosed with Asperger syndrome at age 20
Dr Mark Wetherell
Reader in Psychobiology and Health Psychology at Northumbria University
