What is the theory behind this CBT Autism Worksheet?

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can help clients with Autism to restructure their negative thoughts, learn effective coping skills to manage the symptoms related to their condition and also develop skills such as problem solving and emotion regulation. Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder characterised by social skill deficiencies, odd behavioural patterns and issues with communication.  

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet can help young clients with Autism to learn emotion regulation skills by identifying and coping with their negative or overwhelming emotions. It will teach them how they can effectively cope in situations that trigger negative emotions based on a past event that had happened. 

How to use this worksheet?

Instruct the young client to think back to a recent event that made them feel a certain negative emotion. Tell them to write down how it made them feel, both physically and emotionally, what it made them think, how they acted and what they can do to deal with that emotion in the future.
