Sept 25 – Bio-Medical Meeting – EFT Tapping Therapy with Janice Smylie – 7pm-9pm

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupunctureneuro-linguistic programmingenergy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT). It is best known through Gary Craig’s EFT Handbook, published in the late 1990s, and related books and workshops by a variety of teachers. EFT and similar techniques are often discussed under the umbrella term “energy psychology”.

Advocates claim that the technique may be used to treat a wide variety of physical and psychological disorders, and as a simple form of self-administered therapy.                                                                                                      (Source – Wikipedia)

Janice Smylie has been an EFT Trainer and Practioner for over 10 years. She will be presenting at the Autism Calgary Office on Thursday, September 25th from 7pm-9pm. map

NT Spouses and Partners to Someone with Aspergers Support Group – Oct 7th

Hands in a mountain close-up

To be a partner to someone with Asperger’s (AS) is, for better or for worse, filled with unique moments. Neurotypical (NT) partners experience marriage differently than they would in an NT/NT relationship.

We would like to offer an opportunity for NT spouses to come together once a month,  and explore the successes and challenges of their relationships. This is an opportunity to learn more about ourselves, our strengths and also areas of focus for personal healing and growth. The group runs the second week  of every month, on Tuesdays from 7-9 pm. The next support group meeting will be Tuesday, October 7th at the Autism Calgary Office, 174, 3359 27th Street NE, T1Y 5E4.  Registration is required.

Our Events

I Have Autism

"I have Autism. I may not look unusual, but I experience the world much differently than you do. Autism makes it difficult for me to communicate with you, and sometimes causes me to have unusual behaviour. I am doing my very best. Please be patient with me and my caregivers, who are trying to give me a full and happy life."
