Lee A. Wilkinson, Ph.D., adjunct faculty at NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies (CPS,) is the author of a new book: Overcoming Anxiety and Depression on the Autism Spectrum: A Self-Guide Using CBT. This self-help guide presents strategies derived from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), adapted specifically for adults with autism, to encourage self-analysis, overcome anxiety and depression, and improve psychological wellbeing.
The book is an essential self-help guide for adults on the autism spectrum looking for ways to effectively cope with their emotional challenges and make better decisions in activities, such as employment and relationships. Mental health professionals who work with this underserved group of adults will find the book a useful resource as well.
Wilkinson is also author of the award-winning book, A Best Practice Guide to Assessment and Intervention for Autism and Asperger Syndrome in Schools, and editor of a recent volume in the APA School Psychology Book Series, Autism Spectrum Disorder in Children and Adolescents: Evidence-Based Assessment and Intervention in Schools.
