Recognizing the Signs of Victimization in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Webinar)

Sponsoring Organization(s): Justice Clearinghouse (More Detail)
City: 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET 
Country: Satellite/Web Based 
Event Site: Online 
Topic: Juvenile Justice
This Webinar will examine the concept of traumatic stress as it relates to children and adolescents who had Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This webinar is meant to be a second part to Dr. Wesley Dotson's discussion on ASD. As a result, the focus will not be on ASD but on ASD and trauma.

The webinar will start with the basics of trauma-informed care for children and adolescents, as well as how trauma and stress responses affect your neurology (as well as how to regulate this response more efficiently). We will then move to concrete tools and resources for working with children and adolescents with both ASD and trauma exposure such as the Road to Recovery training series from the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN).

Specific, concrete tools the viewer will be able to take with them at the end of this webinar are:

- How traumatic stress affects an individual's neurology in the moment of crisis and "how pull a person out of their neurology" to help with de-escalation.
- How YOUR neurology tries to drag you to a less effective response pattern during a crisis situation and how to reverse that effect.
- Specific resources for learning more about trauma and children with ASD (e.g., the NCTSN).
- Specific ways that ASD symptoms and trauma symptoms can be confused (e.g., odd eye contact or not answering your questions) and why this matters for your job.
