Rethinking Mental Health Care for Autistic Adults and Teens

If autistic people had access and power to shape mental health care, services would be quite different. Mental health care designed and delivered by neurotypical people is infused with inherent bias toward neurotypical experiences. These biases contribute to misdiagnoses, poor accommodation of sensory, executive functioning and communication needs, and the discouragement of autistic people in treatment. Course participants will gain skills and knowledge so that they may better serve the many autistic/neurodivergent individuals who experience trauma, anxiety, gender dysphoria, eating disorders, depression and relationship issues.

Finn V. Gratton, LMFT is a somatic psychotherapist whose work with youth and adults is focused on the nexus of transgender identity, neurodivergence, and trauma. Finn’s book, Supporting Transgender Autistic Youth and Adults was published in 2019. Finn identifies as non-binary and autistic.
