Ethics of Neurodiversity Affirming Couples Therapy | Live Virtual CEU Training

Friday, December 2, 2022

10 AM - 1:30 PM

In this 3.5-hour live virtual training, we will explore neurodiversity-affirming couples therapy through the lenses of ethical models, including the social model for disability. We will bust some common neurodiversity myths, challenge our assumptions, and explore how to adapt our couples therapy work to be more inclusive, effective, and neurodiversity-affirming.

Attendees will be able to…

  • Explain an affirming perspective for understanding neurodiversity and neurodivergence
  • Understand the ethical foundation for providing neurodiversity-affirming care and language in couples therapy
  • Explore how neurotype interface issues may manifest in a neurodiverse couple
  • Aid couples in exploring their unique support needs for their neurotypes
  • Adapt couples therapy to be more neurodiversity-affirming, inclusive, and effective
  • Explore how to navigate ethical dilemmas in working with neurodiverse couples

The training itself will be neurodiversity affirming and will encourage accommodations to support neurodivergent clinicians, such as options to turn off their camera while attending, access to handouts of slides, and will also have a mix of lecture, media, and experiential activities to keep things interesting!

Includes 3.5 Ethics CEUs for Texas Mental Health professionals who attend live. A recording will be available for 60 days after the event for those who cannot attend live.
