Autism, ADHD, & Other Neurodiverse Variations:
Neurological Differences to Be Respected, NOT Diseases to Be Cured

The world can be cruel to neurodivergent people.

As a result, many of our neurodivergent clients lock their true selves away behind a mask of “normal”

But the constant effort to be something they’re not comes at a heavy mental and emotional cost.

While they may blend in on the surface…

Behind that façade they struggle with a mistrust of themselves, hatred for their bodies, and fear of their desires.

To undo years emotional damage, they need a clinician who can collaborate with them to find their unique strengths and talents.

With Neurodiversity Affirming Therapy, YOU can be that clinician.

This powerful model recognises that neurodivergence itself is NOT a flaw or disability to be “fixed”. Neurodiversity Affirming Therapy shows you how to adapt your current modalities to this diverse population to work with your clients’ strengths.

With this insight, you can help them overcome depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and other co-occurring mental health conditions that come from trying to fit into a world that wasn’t built for them.

In this online course, Clinical Psychologist Monique Mitchelson reveals a simple Neurodiversity Affirming therapy model you can add to your practice immediately…

To connect authentically with your neurodivergent clients so they can finally thrive in a neurotypical world.

Open Dialogue: An Innovative and Inclusive Way to Emphasise Humanity: Understanding and working with people in personal, family, and social contexts

Digital seminar with Renata Porzig-Drummond, PhD, BSc Psychology (Hon), Grad Dip Psychology, BA, Cert Holistic Couns - Click here for information about Renata Porzig-Drummond

Most people enjoy being heard. If they engage in therapy, they need to be heard. Regretfully, the experiences of individuals are often unintentionally minimised, and their realities denied…

Not only by family and friends but also by professionals. Not being heard, in turn, can increase a person’s feelings of aloneness and create a roadblock to their recovery.

Open Dialogue bridges this gap by aiming to understand an individual’s experience in the context of their family and social network, and by activating the person’s psychosocial resources.

The training will provide an understanding of the Open Dialogue approach on a theoretical and practical level, including:

  • A brief overview of the approach and its application
  • The seven underlying principles of Open Dialogue
  • The twelve key elements of Dialogical Practice
  • Skills training in appreciative listening
  • Skills training in dialogical practice
