Autism Spectrum Disorder and Integrated Play Groups Seminar slated
The Ateneo de Manila PhD. Clinical Psychology Internship Class ’13, in cooperation with the Fr. Jaime C. Bulatao Center for Psychological Services and the Occupational Therapy Association of the Philippines, will hold the Autism Spectrum Disorder and Integrated Play Groups (IPG) Seminar on March 19, 2013 (Tuesday), 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Leong Hall.
Pamela Wolfberg, Ph.D., an internationally renowned expert on autism spectrum and integrated care, will conduct the seminar. Topics include basic principles and practices of the IPG, the unique needs of individuals on the autism spectrum in the areas of peer socialization, and play and imagination across the lifespan.
The one-day IPG seminar is open to a wide range of participants. It is designed for professionals such as psychologists, occupational therapists, teachers, counselors, and social workers, among others. Parents, adult siblings, relatives and other individuals who care for people on the autism spectrum are also invited. While the IPG model targets childhood autism, Dr. Wolfberg has developed adaptations for teens and adults as well.
This seminar will also present apprenticeship opportunities with Dr. Wolfberg, which may be carried out via long-distance communication (e.g., Skype). The accreditation process may be initiated following the initial IPG seminar if participants are interested.
