The Cassandra Syndrome
12th November 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Cassandra Syndrome, or the Cassandra Phenomenon, refers to traumatic stress which affects people who are in a relationship with someone on the autism spectrum.
In November’s Open Research Forum Deborah Lawrence draws on her personal experience of relationships with people on the autism spectrum. She will explore the intimate and domestic aspect of these relationships can be supported through a distinctive approach from that usually adopted in the counselling of couples.
This topic will be of particular interest to couples, therapists and counsellors.
