Building Resilience, Self-Esteem & Confidence to Support Wellbeing

This webinar will teach caregivers and support persons how to build resilience, self-esteem, and well-being and why these things are central to a person’s good mental health. We’ll explore the components that create the scaffolding around an autistic person in order for them to feel well within themselves – predictability, structure, physical activity, the pursuit of interests, creating motivation, reducing anxiety, and building confidence. It is this scaffolding that allows a person to thrive, not just survive.

Understanding and Alleviating Anger Rumination and Perseveration

This webinar will teach caregivers and support persons what rumination is, how to recognize the signs of rumination and perseverative thoughts, the connection between mental health issues and rumination, and how to diffuse rumination before it morphs into behaviors of concern. Strategies used in low arousal approaches such as exercise, anxiety reduction, distraction and sensory regulation will be explored as well as how to build some interoceptive awareness. Building these tools through available resources will round out the webinar.
