Being a parent/family member of an autistic child, teen or adult can be highly stressful. “Perfect” parents and families do not exist, but some cope better than others. In his counselling practice, “successful parents” have taught Dale twelve strategies (secrets) for a happier and more fulfilling family life. With ideas from stress management and family therapy research, and keeping in mind the impact of COVID-19, this session will reveal and discuss these strategy ‘secrets’.
