Working with Neurodiverse Couples
The terms neurotypical and neurodivergent are being utilized more frequently in relational therapies. In a neurodiverse couple, one partner possesses a neurological variation (to include, but not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorder, formerly Asperger’s syndrome). These variations, may lead to unique challenges in communication, connection, and intimacy, requiring specialized care. Since most therapists are trained to treat couples through a neurotypical lens, this workshop is designed to help therapists adjust their attunements and approach when working with neurodiverse systems.
This conference is being held virtually.
