The Peter M. Friedman
Neurodiverse Couples Institute
Training for therapists. Resources for couples.
The mission of The Peter M. Friedman Neurodiverse Couples Institute is to increase awareness, support, and resources for neurodiverse couples — in which one or both members has an Asperger / Autism spectrum profile — by providing specialized training for therapists to recognize, understand, and treat this unique population.
Neurodiverse Couples, WE NEED YOU!
Neurology matters a great deal in an intimate relationship, since it impacts every conversation a couple has, how they make decisions together, how they raise children together, how they live together, and how they achieve goals together.
“I am so thankful to find out that my husband is on the spectrum. It has given me so much relief. For years I felt that if I had just done more, or gone for help earlier, things would have been better, but now I realize that unless the therapist understood Asperger’s, it would not have helped.”

Neurology Matters: An Online Program to Teach Couples Therapists to Recognize, Understand, and Treat Neurodiverse Couples
Intimate relationships can be hard for anyone, but they are especially challenging for neurodiverse couples — partners have different perspectives, communication techniques, skill sets, and approaches to life. AANE has assembled an Advisory Team of experts to develop our specialized training program to teach therapists why neurology matters in couples therapy and how to recognize, understand, and treat neurodiverse couples.
Do you want to become a part of the curriculum development process? We are looking for couples therapists to help us test the online training curriculum. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
