Noch nicht erschienen
BeschreibungAsperger Syndrome (AS) can affect some of the fundamental ingredients required to make relationships work, such as emotional empathy and communication. This workbook provides couples affected by AS with strategies that will benefit their relationship together, and their family as a whole. With candid advice, activities and worksheets, the book explores a variety of approaches that couples can use to improve their relationship. Whilst acknowledging that all relationships are different and each needs to be viewed as a unique case, the author identifies specific issues that can be problematic in an Asperger relationship. The book provides a range of ideas based on years of research and counseling experience and covers crucial areas such as verbal and non-verbal communication, sexual issues, parenting and home life. This practical book is designed for use by couples and families affected by AS, either on their own or in conjunction with a counselor.

Pressestimmen'This book is a positive addition to Asperger Syndrome (AS)/Neurotypical (NT) relationship literature providing not only information, but also useful tools and strategies to deal with typical AS/NT issues. Maxine has included excellent definitions and explanations of the differences between the AS and NT partner and places strong emphasis on the fact that being different doesn't mean being wrong. We would recommend this workbook to AS/NT couples seeking practical solutions to many of the day-to-day issues that this type of relationship brings. This book will really make a difference to those who want to live more harmoniously together.'- Sarah Hendrickx and Keith Newton, authors of Asperger Syndrome - A Love Story
