OUR NEXT TAP TALK September 14th ‘18 NICK & CORRINA WOOD Working with clients on the autistic spectrum It is becoming increasingly common for therapists to see clients who have an autistic spectrum condition such as Asperger’s syndrome. Therapists often find the work challenging and that traditional skills associated with listening therapies, such as maintaining eye contact, don’t appear productive. This talk looks at ASC from the viewpoint of the ‘sensory funnel’ and explores how knowledge of the condition and some core strategies can build a secure therapeutic relationship with a client for whom social interaction and relationships are normally difficult to experience and maintain. Nick is a BACP accredited therapist specialising in workplace and equalities issues. Corrina has a Masters in autism studies and is a freelance family support worker and trainer.
