Live Professional Workshop Series: Current Practice in the Assessment and Treatment of Autistic Children
Autism spectrum disorder is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder, requiring specialized assessment and treatment strategies. Given the growing number of children identified with ASD, it is vital that early intervention and mental health providers become adept at integrating these strategies into their clinical care. This presentation will focus on providing practical skills to address common challenges faced by clinicians working with autistic children: how to distinguish ASD from other neurodevelopmental disorders and effectively assess neurocognitive functioning, how to deliver efficacious mental health interventions targeting co-occurring conditions, and how to deliver efficacious early intervention.

Live Professional Workshop Series: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): Applications in the Current Pandemic Era
During the COVID-19 pandemic, countless disruptions and challenges impacted everyday life as well as clinical care. Clinicians were called upon to maintain flexibility in the context of uncertainty on a near-constant basis. The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework can support our adaptation to this unique context; ACT aims to foster psychological flexibility by disarming the struggle with uncomfortable thoughts and emotions and aligning actions with personal values and sources of meaning and purpose. To support providers, this workshop will summarize the ACT framework and transdiagnostic applications, then highlight the particular relevance of this approach to current pandemic-related mental health challenges. This workshop will be geared to engage providers at any level of previous ACT experience by linking theory and experiential practice, and developing integrative treatment plans incorporating ACT tools and techniques alongside other empirically supported treatments.
