Course Description: Master specialized Trauma-Informed Mental Health Care approaches specifically tailored for Neurodivergent Populations.
Join Therapist Neurodiversity Collective and Dr. Gabriela Hurtado Alvarado, Ph.D., a Licensed Psychologist, for an engaging and informative 1.5-hour live course focusing on neurodiversity-affirming and trauma-informed therapeutic strategies. 

📌 This advanced course builds upon the foundational knowledge from our introductory on-demand course, “Neurodiversity-Affirming, Ethical Trauma Therapy.”

Therapists will learn how to move beyond traditional behavioral and exposure-based approaches, such as CBT and DBT, which may exacerbate trauma, and will explore adapting mental health care to be more inclusive and effective for neurodivergent clients. 

What You’ll Gain:

💡 Learn to effectively screen and assess autistic and neurodivergent clients, focusing on understanding their unique needs.
💡 Gain insights into various levels of care, addressing acute safety needs and considering the client’s identities, disabilities, strengths, support network, and cultural context.
💡 Neurodivergent-Centered Care – Case Studies: Dr. Hurtado Alvarado will provide examples of how assessment and therapy practices were adapted to the specific sensitivities and needs of individual neurodivergent clients, fostering healing respectfully and safely.
