Mental health issues are significant for people on the spectrum and wellbeing and resilience play a vital role in reducing and minimising mental health issues. Resilience refers to the ability to recover from a disappointment, and wellbeing encompasses ones happiness, health and welfare.
This session looks at:
• Wellbeing and resilience in relation to characteristics of autism;
• Impact this can have on a person; and
• Supports and strategies to improve wellbeing and resilience.
Throughout the workshop, the presenter will use discussion, activities and videos to deliver information on these topics to enhance the attendees knowledge of supporting wellbeing and resilience in people on the spectrum. This will also enable them to provide effective support to their child on the spectrum.
