Misunderstandings around neurodivergence, especially communication and stress response differences, can create an invisible barrier to both connected relationships and effective therapy. In this introductory presentation therapists will explore the foundations of what it means to provide neurodiversity affirming therapy. Neurodiversity affirming therapy honors the unique needs, strengths, and struggles of ALL human brains, both neurotypical and neurodivergent. Through neurodiversity affirming care, we help can help our clients to embrace who they are and adapt our therapeutic approach to meet the unique needs of their nervous system.
