Local autism network offering
modified cognitive behavioral training to mental health providers


The Alabama Regional Autism
Networks are offering in-person training sessions throughout the state on how
providers can modify traditional cognitive behavioral therapies when working
with individuals with autism.


The workshop will be offered in
Mobile by the University of South Alabama Regional Autism Network (USARAN) on
Friday, July 21, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the John Counts Room at the
Mitchell Center on the USA campus.


Amy Mitchell, director of the
USARAN, said the training is becoming more important for mental health
providers, counselors and social workers to have.


“Mental health providers are
reporting an increase in the number of individuals with autism seeking mental
health services for such things as anxiety, depression, executive function and
social skills,” she said.

Traditional strategies, such as cognitive
behavioral therapy (CBT), often need to be modified to properly and effectively
address the needs of this population.


“This workshop was developed
by the Alabama Regional Autism Network in response to requests from mental
health professionals across the state for training to modify traditional
strategies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, to meet the unique needs of
autistic individuals,” Mitchell said. 

The registration fee for the
conference is $50 per person, and it includes CEUs, a light continental
breakfast and beverages. To register, visit https://training.ua.edu/aebpai/.
