Worry ! Something we all do to a greater or lesser extent.
We are very pleased to welcome back Dr Adrian Edwards, a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. from the Community Adult Aspergers Service (CAAS). Having worked in the NHS for well over ten years, Dr Edwards has been full time with CAAS since 2014, working across the county. As he describes himself "I have gathered experience with a varied client group, across the lifespan, supporting children, adolescents (and their families) and adults with, or exploring a diagnosis of, an Autism Spectrum Condition."
Dr Edwards will be talking about the common difficulties we can all suffer from when anxious, exploring how to understand and help with worrying, what we can do and what we can’t do. He hopes to introduce some fresh and thought provoking ideas and discuss how new directions might emerge from thinking critically about the process.
|And Finally .....||Time after the Main Event to circulate, chat, seek advice or offer help and generally catch up.|
|Note for first-timers||At DAAS meetings you are welcome to join in and take part but you are also welcome to just listen & observe – whatever feels comfortable.|
|Can You Help?||Many thanks to those who already help in running DAAS meetings or who have recently offered to take on some of the support roles. If you would like DAAS to thrive and prosper please think seriously about what you too can do.|
