Two-Day Training Course for clinicians (clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, etc) who are interested in setting up their own diagnostic services or who want to improve their diagnostic skills. This will cover training in the use of our diagnostic instrument; i.e., the Adult Asperger Assessment (AAA), our screening instruments, viz., the Autism Spectrum Quotient (AQ), the Empathy Quotient (EQ), and the Relatives’ Questionnaire.
This course is led by Dr Janine Robinson, Chartered Clinical Psychologist and senior clinician in the CLASS Clinic in Cambridge. The CLASS Clinic has assessed and diagnosed over 400 adults with AS over the last 10 years and is a unique specialist clinic.
The course will cover all aspects surrounding screening, assessment and diagnosis and includes invited lecturers on the first day. The second day provides the opportunity for interactive discussion, with a DVD presentation of the standard AAA assessment procedure. Trainees will gain experience in conducting AS assessments for adults, employing the AAA diagnostic method. Courses are run 4 times per year with a maximum of 10 trainees per group. The course lasts 2 days and is held at a convenient location in Cambridge.
There will be 4 courses held during 2010 and dates will be listed early in January 2010.
The cost of attending is £500 per trainee, which covers course fees, presentation notes, handouts and refreshments (but not accommodation). To book, please contact the Course Administrator, Mrs Jenny Hannah by email only.
This course is hosted by the Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, and all profits go to supporting autism research.
