Caring for the Caregiver

February 24, 2021, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Workshop Description:

Caring for the Caregiver: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT seeks to help individuals to manage difficult things in their lives and mindfully connect with things that are most important in a way that is loving and respectful. With an introduction to the concept of ‘mindfulness,’ ACT helps to develop a new mindful relationship with unwanted thoughts and feelings. This process helps a person to be more open, and to take action consistent with what they care about.

Who Should Attend?

This group is for parents & caregivers of individuals on the autism spectrum. To enable group
sharing and support, participants must have access to a computer with a webcam, video, and
audio.

About the Facilitators:

The ACT workshops are run by two facilitators who are both parents of individuals who are on the autism spectrum. One facilitator is also a clinician.

Dates and Times:

February 24, Mar 3, Mar 10, Mar 17, and Apr 14th, 2021 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

The ACT intervention is spread over 4 evenings followed by a “refresher” evening session, held 4
weeks later. It is required that you attend all five dates.
