Adapting cognitive-behavioural therapy for people with Autism

Go Back


 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 as a consequence, there has been an ever-increasing interest in adapting and delivering psychological therapies for people with autism.

Learning objectives:

• Discuss and explain autism spectrum disorders

• Consider the theories that have been developed to explain and understand autism

• Consider this information and its relevance to psychological formulation in groups

• Discuss some of the adaptations that have been made to therapy for people with autism

• Consider how you might adapt psychological therapies effectively for people with autism in groups

• Review and consider the evidence for psychological therapies when used with people with autism
