2 x 3 hour workshop sessions Workshop
Autism and ADHD are neurodevelopmental conditions that profoundly influence the way we are in the world. In our current urban world, characterized by high speed, deadlines, full agendas, multitasking, (social) performance pressure, and a bombardment of stimuli, all of us but people with autism and ADHD even more so may experience sensory overload, attention problems, and too much stress. Those who live with people with autism or ADHD, whether they are partners, parents, or children, may also experience high levels of stress, because they feel or take over their stress. Mindfulness can help here to regulate sensory overload, attention, and intrapersonal and interpersonal stress. Whether you are working with adult clients with autism or ADHD and/or provide mindfulness training, these two workshop evenings will provide new perspectives and practical tools that will help you adjust your training or therapy, improve the therapeutic relationship, and deepen your professional and personal journey.
