About This Webinar
The parent-professional collaboration has been a cornerstone of autism treatment for decades. However, families of individuals with autism spectrum disorder have unique experiences that significantly affect their interactions with educators and clinicians. Heightening professionals’ understanding of the impact that the autism diagnosis has on caregivers may bolster their compassion in these pivotal relationships.
In this webinar, Dr. Kate Fiske and Dr. Bridget Taylor will:
- Discuss the toll that raising a child with autism can have on the mental health and emotional well-being of parents and caregivers, as well as its impact on parent involvement in their child’s treatment.
- Share compassionate steps all professionals can take in working with family members to reduce parent stress and build effective, collaborative relationships.
- Review the current status of research and training on compassion in the field of autism treatment, and discuss initiatives that will further advance our understanding of the benefits of compassion with this population.
