Managing the Mental Health Need of Autistic Adults

Presented by Valerie L. Gaus, Ph.D.

Adults with autism spectrum disorder often present in psychotherapy settings, seeking help for problems that may be related to the core symptoms of ASD and/or for the co-morbid mental health problems, such as mood and anxiety disorders. This workshop will give an overview of the common presenting problems psychotherapists may encounter, as well as a model for individualized case formulation and treatment planning. Evidence-based CBT approaches relevant to presenting problems will also be described.

This workshop was recorded on April 9, 2021.
