For Mental Health Professionals
None of us are taught how to work with neurodivergent clients.
I don't know about you, but my graduate program taught me nothing `about how to work with neurodivergent clients. And yet, 15-20% of people are neurodivergent. So the chances that you are working with a neurodivergent client right now is very high.
15-20% of all people are neurodivergent.
One day, hopefully soon, a class on working with neurodivergent people will be just as mandatory for mental health professionals as a class on substance use (affecting 7.5% of U.S. Americans). But for now, you'll need to get training on working neurodivergent folxs for three reasons:
You likely already have multiple neurodivergent clients on your caseload
Neurodivergent people are increasingly looking for therapists who use a neurodiversity-affirming approach
The community of therapists who work with neurodivergent folxs from a neurodiversity-affirming lens is full
Therapists who serve neurodivergent folxs are full
Come join Join a neurodiversity-affirming therapy training to learn how you can serve your neurodivergent clients with the validation, compassion, and effectiveness they need to thrive.
