VIDEO CONFERENCE: Ashamed?

January 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PST
VIDEO CONFERENCE Portland,OR97217United States
$18.95
VIDEO CONFERENCE Ashamed
Feelings of shame are more complicated than feeling aggravated (the topic for the first January video conferences). Aggravation is honest anger with someone who keeps getting in your way. Shame on the other hand is a kind of codependence where you mistakenly take on responsibility for your “Aspie’s” misconduct.

VIDEO CONFERENCE Portland,OR97217United States
$18.95
VIDEO CONFERENCE: Why do they always forget?
Anyone who lives with an adult with High Functioning Autism knows how aggravating it is that our “ASD” loved one cannot seem to remember anything we ask of them. From picking up groceries, to picking up the kids. From knowing our favorite restaurant, to remembering the name of the soccer coach. “Aspies” do not remember the small and large things that are important to us. And that makes us feel unloved and unappreciated. This forgetfulness is often mistaken for ADHD,… Find out more »

February 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
VIDEO CONFERENCE Portland,OR97217United States

VIDEO CONFERENCE: I just want to be understood.
Being understood is the basic underpinning of empathy. To offer another the opportunity to be heard and understood — this is such a loving gift. Sadly, “Aspies” struggle to understand you, the deeper YOU. They get the details of you, but they often fail to understand and communicate with the deeper YOU. Of course, this leaves us feeling alone in our marriages and relationships. It is in the interaction between people that we feel understood. It isn’t always the words that are… Find out more »
