Autism... Really? A.T.D.R.A. for Parents [trans., DYNAMIC RELATIONAL THERAPY APPROACH (created in WATER)]
Please take this rare opportunity to join us for this life-transforming workshop by Dr. Antonio Rinaldi, Italy-based clinical psychologist, specialist in autism, and founder of A.T.D.R.A. [trans., DYNAMIC RELATIONAL THERAPY APPROACH (created in Water)] and co-presenter, Ms. Choo Kah Ying (author and joyful mother of Sebastien, her autistic son).
As a parent who has experienced the devastating impact of mainstream practices centred on managing Sebastien's behaviour Sebastien until she met Dr. Antonio and the joy of parenting an autistic child with lightness, Ms. Choo is determined to share the wisdom of A.T.D.R.A. with other families struggling with autism.
A part of our "Saving Autistic Lives Mission", this is Part 2 of our A.T.D.R.A. workshop series. Participants should have attended the workshop on June 29: https://whatisautismatdra1.peatix.com/
This workshop is for parents ONLY. Parents will acquire the ATDRA mindset and techniques and learn how to apply them to:
· Connect with their children empathetically,
· Create activities at home to involve them,
· Deal with challenging situations,
· Collaborate with teachers and therapists, and
· Address their own well-being as it exerts a critical impact on their children.
Through this workshop, participants will be initiated on a critical journey to change their mindset and being by gaining a comprehensive and empathetic understanding of why their autistic children engage in "inappropriate" behaviours from stimming to meltdowns. You will discover the beauty of what it truly means to be a parent of an autistic child.
About Dr. Antonio Rinaldi
Dr. Antonio Rinaldi is a clinical psychologist and creator of A.T.D.R.A., an evolutive approach for treating autism and other developmental disorders. Unlike conventional approaches that view autism through external behaviours, A.T.D.R.A. delves into the inner psyche of the autistic being with an empathy-centred approach. In addition, he has pioneered the swimming pool and surfing therapy approaches, which harness the dynamic qualities of water and waves for emotional regulation and interactions.
Through his organisation, For You A.T.D.R.A., Dr. Rinaldi has been spreading his therapy approach in collaboration with autism organisations throughout Italy and abroad. He has conducted talks, workshops, supervisions, and consultations for the past eight years. It is Dr. Rinaldi’s life mission to transform the world into a community that can properly support and empower autistic individuals to lead meaningful lives of quality.
