Exploring Bullying with Adults with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome
Bullying is a serious and pervasive issue for people with autism and Asperger Syndrome. Whether you have been a victim of bullying or a perpetrator, this photocopiable workbook will help you explore what bullying is, the effects it can have and how you can tackle it successfully.
In this accessible and jargon-free book, complete with case studies and summaries, you are invited to consider the thoughts, feelings and actions associated with bullying and offered helpful strategies for dealing with it. The book comprises a general introduction to bulling, followed by sections that examine the issue from the perspective of both victim and the perpetrator. By looking at both sides of the story, the book gives the full picture and tackles the problem at its root, recognising that while people on the spectrum are all too often bullied for being ‘different’, they may also unintentionally bully others due to a difficulty with empathy and misunderstanding those around them.
This practical book can be worked through either on your own or with any of the wide range of professional s involved in supporting an adult with autism or Asperger Syndrome and other learning disabilities, to reach a new level of understanding about bullying.
