Join psychotherapist  Eoin Stephens  and Ausome Training Director Evaleen Whelton for this free webinar on December 12th at 7-8pm Irish Time (GMT)

 

AUsome Training is currently offering a 10 day course to helping professionals who are working with or who want to work with Autistic adults. Eoin is one of the facilitators on this vital course. In this webinar Evaleen and Eoin, who are both Autistic will discuss what it’s like for many who find out they are Autistic in adulthood.

They will share from their own personal experiences as well as professional experience and members of a worldwide Autistic Community.

Often adult identification comes with the realisation that one has experienced a lifetime of trauma. It can take a long time to dismantle what is “Autistic” and what is “trauma” , in fact many professionals still mistake the two. Even the DSM describes many human response to trauma as “autism”.

This session is ideal for helping professionals who are interested in learning more about their clients or anyone who is considering taking this course with us.
