Autism Spectrum Disorder: Assessment, Intervention and Prevention Strategies for those with Problematic Behaviours​

Of the many individuals who clinicians encounter, those with combinations of Autism Spectrum Disorders and sexual or aggressive behaviour problems are likely among the most challenging.  Unhealthy preoccupations, empathy deficits, intimacy problems, social impairments, and inflexible thinking are some characteristics that can be attributed to, or else amplified by, conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorders.  This presentation reviews relevant research in child development and forensic mental health and discusses its adaptation and application to assessment, intervention and prevention of these problems with youth and adults.  Protective factors, early warning signs, caregiver engagement and education, methods for supporting healthy identity development, and recommendations for intervention and support will be highlighted.

Learn about relevant research in child development and forensic mental health. Explore strategies for assessment, intervention, and prevention for problematic sexual and aggressive behaviour with youth and adults.
