Professor Peter Langdon – Adapting and delivering exposure therapy for autistic adults with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities and anxiety disorders. Online event

£75

Autism is a lifelong neurodevelopmental disability characterised by differences in reciprocal social interaction and social communication, along with restricted interests and rigid and repetitive behaviours. This population has an increased prevalence of a range of mental health problems, and consequently there has been an ever-increasing interest in adapting and delivering psychological therapies for people with autism. At the same time, adults with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities are often not offered psychological therapies and are more likely to have communication difficulties and require lifelong high-quality support to promote social inclusion. The workshop will be interactive and include both experiential and didactic teaching and videos. Participants will have a chance to discuss cases.
