(Webinar) Autism and Attachment: Does my child love me?

Dr. Jule Epp, Dipl-Psych is a psychologist resides in Berlin, Germany.

Quite often Dr. Jule Epp has heard parents of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) telling her these painful truths: “When I come into the room, he doesn’t even notice me.” “When I try to hug her, she pushes me away.” “Whenever I try to be with him, he tells me he wants to be by himself.” Or even “She only comes to me when she wants something, when she needs me to get something for her. She doesn’t see me as a person.”

Adults working with children or adolescents “on the spectrum” are often feeling very unsure of themselves. The child’s behaviour suggests an aloofness, even an aversion to contact. Many parents and caretakers understandably feel rejected by their child. And so the deeply troubling question arises: Do I really matter to this child? Does my child love me?

In this webinar, Jule Epp will explore both perspectives: that of the child diagnosed with ASD and that of the parent or caretaker. The webinar will also address how we can understand the desperate move to resist attachment that we see in the child diagnosed with ASD. It will explore how this rejecting behaviour can make us as adults feel and how we tend to respond to it. And it will explore how we can break through the vicious circle of alienation that can ensue between adult and child when the defensive behaviour of the child is misunderstood. What the child diagnosed with ASD needs from us as adults is concrete support – best given in the context of play and with respect for the individual sensitivities of the child – in order to develop the deep, loving attachments both child and adult are yearning for.

Suitability & Applicability

This webinar is suitable for parents and professionals.

Positive Discipline effectiveness extends to any child from the “terrible twos” to a “defiant teen” so they can be supported in becoming respectful, cooperative, and responsible. This is an opportunity to practice for the skills necessary to feel more confident on the parenting arena.

  • You are interested in putting an effective, practical parenting approach to work in your family

  • Create an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect in your home
  • Minimize sibling rivalry
