Secondary Network Day - Managing Feelings

Do you want to know more about how to help students on the autism spectrum to cope with their anxieties and low mood?

Managing Feelings -

How to help students on the autism spectrum to manage their emotions

Secondary schools present all adolescents with a range of challenges as they struggle to learn to deal with the emotional aspects of life.  Young people who are on the autism spectrum find it more difficult than most to tune in with and respond to their feelings.

Managing our emotions is essential to all of us in order to ensure emotional wellbeing.  Many young people who are on the spectrum are highly anxious and this can pre-dispose them to a range of mental health problems or may result in them displaying a range of challenging behaviours.

This one day course will help you to:

  • Understand why emotional processing is different for young people on the autism spectrum
  • Identify practical supportive strategies to use in school
  • Gain information on interventions that are effective
  • Network with other professionals in the city

 

When – Thursday, 10th December  2015  9.00 – 3.00
