This workshop will address effective ways of offering psychotherapy to children on the autism spectrum via didactic teaching, readings, and experiential involvement through role playing and writing. Participants are invited to bring vignettes from their own work to expand the discussion.

  • Participants will recognize how children on the autism spectrum express themselves through play

  • Countertransference reactions will be identified and understood by clinicians as guideposts to treatment

  • Participants will practice and learn ways to explain the difficulties faced by a child with ASD to caregivers as viewed through the lens of a spectrum disorder.
