Content By: Peterson, J. L., Earl, R. K., Fox, E. A., Ma, R., Haidar, G., Pepper, M., ... & Bernier, R. A. (2019). Trauma and autism spectrum disorder: Review, proposed treatment adaptations and future directions. Journal of Child & Adolescent Trauma, 12(4), 529-547.

Course Description: Research studies have identified that individuals with common mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety, are at increased risk for negative consequences following trauma exposure. There has been considerably less attention on the impact of childhood trauma among those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Considering the heterogenous nature of ASD on social, language, and behavioral skills more work is needed to improve screening, diagnosis, and treatment of trauma in this population. The researchers discuss how gold standard treatments for trauma, including trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) can be adapted to meet the needs of ASD youth. In addition to addressing the core symptoms of ASD, clinicians must also be mindful of associated characteristics that can alter the therapy process.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify characteristics of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that might increase the risk for experiencing trauma
  2. List three adaptations that can be made with existing psychotherapeutic treatments to address trauma symptomology in patients with ASD
  3. Compare and contrast the treatment options for trauma among those with ASD considering the heterogeneity in ASD presentation

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Trauma and autism spectrum disorder: Review, proposed treatment adaptations and future directions
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the challenges of addressing trauma in persons with autism spectrum disorder
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand how existing treatment options can be altered to treat trauma symptomology in persons with autism spectrum disorder
