Applications are now closed for this event.

Facilitated by Georgina Robinson, PhD

This will be an accepting, non-judgmental group dedicated to building the emotional resilience of parents caring for autistic children and adolescents, or young adults (ages 0-30). Participation in this group will teach skills to help you recharge your emotional and physical reservoir, cope with stress effectively, improve your caregiving relationship and build associated skills in your child. Although previous groups (due to research protocols) were limited to parents who were not professional caregivers or those who worked professionally in the field of ASD, this group will be open to all.
