About this conference

Stress affects all of us, but individuals with autism and their families are known to experience massive, often catastrophic levels of stress. This can be a direct cause of a multitude of serious problems relating to personal and family life and health. We need to better understand and respond to stress in order to minimise its harmful effects and to promote healthier lives.

This conference will explore the many physiological and behavioural aspects of stress related to autism and its effects on people's lives, and review interventions that have been found to be effective in minimising them.

Speakers include:

  • Digby Tantam: Deputy Principal, New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling
  • Michael McCreadie: Lead Scientist Practitioner at ATLASS, and Consultant Clinical Director of Studio III Clinical Service
  • Dr Mark Brosnan: University Bath: Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the Cognitive Psychology Section and the Division of Neuropsychology
  • Dr Mark Wetherell: Department of Psychology, Northumbria University
  • Damian Milton: autism consultant and member of Research Autism Scientific and Advisory Committee
  • Dr Carole Buckley: General Practitioner, Bristol
