Divisional of Educational & Child Psychology One Day Event
Anxiety, Autism and Attachment
There has been a rapid growth in our understanding of autism and attachment and the overlap between the two over recent years. For practitioners there is a need to clarify and update knowledge particularly in how it relates to assessment and intervention. The conference would be to look at the interface between anxiety, autism and attachment difficulties. It would include a keynote talk on the basis of these in the brain. There is a plan for a second keynote talk on the presenting features of Autism v Attachment. Two additional talks would be from a young person with autism and a journalist who grew up in care and could reflect on attachment issues from a personal point of view. There would be time for workshops by practitioners related to the conference themes.
