June 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT


1 CE Hour available for NY Practitioners – LCSWs, LMSWs, LPs, LMFTs, LMHCs, LCATs, PHDs, PSYDs

Presenter: Wade Anderson, PhD, Clinical Psychologist & Psychoanalyst

LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS! To allow for depth of clinical discussion and a true sense of our formal coursework, participation will be capped at 20 therapists.

Persons with Autistic Spectrum Disorders can present a myriad of challenges in the consulting room. Each person has their own way of being in the world which needs to be met with compassion and clinical creativity. If you are interested in sharing your own clinical dilemmas treating ASD patients and also hearing from Dr. Anderson about a number of long-term and varied ASD cases, this clinical case consultation would be valuable for you. The small group supervision format offers attendees a taste of the post-graduate training experience at WCSPP.
