AANE Webinar: Autism & Co-Occurring OCD – Treatment Considerations, 3/15/22, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET

March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, $25

Register now and watch this webinar live or later on-demand.  See below for details.

DESCRIPTION: This webinar is intended for adults who are or who suspect they are on the spectrum, parents, other family members, and partners of individuals on the spectrum, as well as professionals who support individuals on the spectrum.

Autistic individuals are at an increased risk of developing co-occurring psychiatric conditions such as anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) at various points across the lifespan. However, these individuals are often unable to access Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety/OCD. Many therapists want to use CBT tools to address Anxiety/OCD in autistic patients, but may erroneously believe that ASD is intrinsically different and that they cannot effectively use CBT to treat this population. This talk is designed to bridge the knowledge and confidence gap and help attendees understand what treatment looks like when working with individuals with ASD who present with co-occurring OCD. During the last 30 minutes of the webinar on March 15, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions via the Zoom chat feature.
