In this episode of Autism Live, Behavior Analyst Dr. Darren Sush joins Shannon Penrod to discuss strategies for parents of children with autism to deal with stress and anger that arises for many at the time of their child’s diagnosis, or throughout the course of raising their child.
Dr. Sush points out that anger is a natural emotion, and accepting that emotion is a huge first step for parents who are feeling angry. Once they do this, parents can attempt to redirect their anger in a more positive direction. Additionally, working with a professional like Dr. Sush can help parents to learn effective strategies for redirecting their anger in a positive manner.
