Child-Psychotherapists or Child-Psychologists specialising in autism needed for our volunteer team
With future opportunities for training and employment
Our goal at Transforming Autism is to intervene very early in instances of autism and to unlock the true potential of autistic children. For more details on our approach to and perspectives on autism, please see our TED talk and our selection of articles, or read our detailed introductory brochure.
Our key goals, which you can support, are to bring the pioneering instensive Mifne Method - based on the principles of Attachment and Containment - to the UK in our own Centre. There are more details about this below We are also working to create a unique and comprehensive hub of support online for parents, covering all they could possibly need to know in their journey bringing up their autistic child in a trust-worthy, well-researched and easily accessible and assimilable way.
You could bring your expertise to help us develop both of these life-changing projects, or to input more generally into making our vision successful.
We will soon be launching regular themed Webinars for parents, answering their questions on various aspects of bringing up their children (there is the possibility that this will later lead to face-to-face visits to parent groups, which could be paid engagements). We need established therapists who resonate deeply with our aproach to autism to lead these webinars.
Our first webinar from Friday 7th Dec - Communicating With Your Child
There is an immediate need for therapists to contribute to and lead these. Videos of the sessions will be made available so you will also be able to use them as part of your showcase.
The Mifne Centre
Our approach is based on that of the pioneering Mifne Clinic in Israel, who we are working with and which has transformed the lives of hundreds of autistic children from as young as a few months old up to toddlers for the past 30 years. Together, we will bring to the UK this compassionate method that respects and builds on each child’s inner-resources and natural interest in the world, and evokes the best within them.
A 3-week family-based intensive treatment at the clinic opens up new unsuspected possibilities for the child and equips parents (with ongoing supervision) to continue treatment as part of the child’s life.
The Clinic has treated hundreds of children and their families with excellent results (Apter et al., 2001) (Alonim et al., 2004, 2011, 2010, 2007).
This news report from Israel TV follows one family during their visit to Mifne to show their transformation.
