December 12 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm PST
TELECONFERENCE, 700 N. Hayden Island Drive
Portland,OR97217United States
Free
Love is a big topic in December because of the holiday emphasis. It’s sweet when you think about it, and a great reminder. But those of use in ASD/NT relationships have a hard time with love. We feel love for our ASD loved ones, but we aren’t so sure they love us. At least the love doesn’t feel the same. Like maybe they love some aspect of you, but not the whole, deeper you. At this teleconference let’s take a… Find out more »

VIDEO CONFERENCE: Is intimacy a thing of the past?

December 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST
VIDEO CONFERENCE Portland,OR97217United States
$18.95
This topic deserves more than one time around, so look for it again next year. But for now, let’s start the discussion so that you know you are not alone with this painful problem. After all it is quite common for sexual intimacy to fade away in NT/ASD relationships. There are lots of reasons for this problem. In any marriage where there are communication problems, intimacy fades. It’s just that in NT/ASD relationships, the problem emerges fairly early on in… Find out more »

VIDEO CONFERENCE Aggravated
Are you aggravated far more than you like to be? Does it feel unfair? I mean, after all, your “Aspies” have meltdowns that are full of anger and rage, whether they are simmering in silence, or out-loud yelling at you. Yet if you dare to express even the slightest aggravation about something unbelievable that they are doing, you are accused of “coming unglued.” If this is true for you, you need this video conference to manage the aggravation.

TELECONFERENCE Will Girls Scouts (or Boy Scouts) Help our Children in Neuro-Diverse Families
Half of America’s women leaders — in any field — were Girl Scouts, according to Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of the Girl Scouts of America. I was startled to hear this fact on a radio interview this morning, with Ms. Acevedo. And it got me to thinking about a question that comes up frequently among our members. That is, they worry about how their children will survive being reared by an “Asperger” parent who lacks empathy. With Mind Blindness ASD parents… Find out more »

VIDEO CONFERENCE: Ashamed?

January 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am 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. For example, if your “Aspie” cannot remember your neighbor’s name, no matter how many times you remind him/her, is that really your fault? And is it your responsibility to help your… Find out more »
