Engaging Autism Course in Stress Reduction
Research tells us that parents living with autism experience stress at alarming rates. Luckily research also shows how to ease that stress. Through education, support and targeted mindfulness training, even parents with a new diagnosis show large reductions in stress. In addition, this method has direct impact on the overall health of the entire family – specifically the child with autism showing better functioning, less stress and increased social skills.
Join us for a six-week course based on the Vanderbilt University curriculum designed specifically to target stress reduction through training and mindfulness in parents with children with autism. Fee includes six classes led by certified parent coach and special education teacher, manual, and audio files for guided meditation. Practice outside of class times will ensure maximum benefit to the family. CEU’s available
