Autism Spectrum Conditions: Diagnosis and Treatment, Advanced Workshop

Format Workshop
Presenters Professor Tony Attwood & Dr Michelle Garnett
Description The purpose of the Advanced Workshop is to develop participants' skills in assessing more difficult and complex presentations of ASC, and for treating adolescents, adults, couples and families affected by ASC. Each presenter has extensive clinical experience in ASC, and draws from this experience to provide both case presentations and simulations to strengthen each participant's learning. Time is provided for questions and discussion. This workshop will follow on from the Basic Workshop and participants may decide themselves whether to register without attending the Basic Workshop. Basic knowledge and some experience with ASC are assumed.
