Description

Training and Treating Wholeheartedly:
Identifying a Role for Compassion Practices in Autism Treatment

Workshop for Autism Professionals
Presented by: SPG and Dr. Bridget Taylor PsyD, BCBA-D

Within certain areas of healthcare, it has been documented that treating patients with compassion and empathy can have important benefits, such as increasing patient satisfaction, enhancing adherence to treatment, and improving clinical outcomes. This presentation examines behavioral responses that may comprise compassion, and therapeutic relationship skills and considers how compassionate care of our clients and ourselves can enhance our work as clinicians, and potentially improve outcomes. This will be a dynamic interactive workshop where participants will be able to role-play and practice compassion practices, discuss compassion challenges, and design a professional culture of compassion for clinical practice.

Dr. Bridget Taylor is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and a Licensed Psychologist. She is considered a leading authority on effective, and innovative interventions for autism. Her recent research interest is in the area of developing training programs to increase staff competencies in collaborating compassionately with caregivers to improve the efficacy of clinical interventions.

This workshop is for anyone engaged in clinical practice with children and their families such as board certified behavior analysts, occupational therapists, special education teachers, and speech and language pathologists.
