Autism and Suicide

November 24, 2020 @ 6:00 PM 7:00 PM

 

We know a diagnosis of Autism does not protect our children or ourselves from mental health challenges, including suicide. Join Megan Farley, PhD, as she shares information about Autism and Suicide. Learning objectives: 1) Recognize signs of suicidality in a person with ASD. 2) Identify current prevalence of ASD and suicide. 3) Describe interventions to help a person with ASD cope with suicidality.  

Megan Farley is a licensed psychologist in private practice at Different Minds. She also works at the Waisman Center, where she provides clinical diagnostic services for children, teens, and young adults with autism spectrum disorders. Her private practice work focuses on adults with ASD. Her research interests are related to outcomes for adults with autism spectrum conditions across functional, health and social areas. She is interested in understanding the natural development of ASC and understanding effective ways to support people with ASC to achieve their goals, especially in the areas of employment, social relationships, and quality of life. 

Please RSVP below by November 23rd; your zoom link will be sent to you the morning of November 24th.
