ASPECT is pleased to announce training dates for 2022  as follows:

ASPECT Training weekends;  15th/16th October and 26th/27th November 2022 

Day 1

11.00 – 3.00
Four hours’ ppt training (with breaks) with opportunity for questions. This is a teaching session which aims to enable delegates to better understand how differently many people with autism think, process information and experience the world and how this impacts on approaches to therapy and counselling. We will hear from people with autism themselves as well as learning about the theories underlying autism and how these can explain many of the differences between autistic and neurotypical people. The ppt will be made available to delegates following the training.

Day 2

11.00 – 2.00 (Please note: attendance on Day 1 is a pre-requisite for attending Day 2)This is a three hour session (with breaks) for those who attended the previous day’s training and who would like to discuss and explore problematic issues they are experiencing working with autistic clients or clients they have reason to believe have autism. Facilitated by Jenny Ronayne, delegates can benefit from shared experiences and concerns, gaining insight and increasing their confidence and expertise in this field.
