I can't find any specific research about this. I want to know if there are specific mental health therapies for co-morbid MH issues, which either do not help people on the spectrum or can do more harm than good. I do not mean medication as that is a separarate discussion.
For instance, I understand CBT can be quite helpful if tailored to our neurology. But with CBT part of it involves facing up to the thing that causes you anxiety, and something like that could be incredibly traumatic for us.
Does anyone have a source I can access to find out more information?
Perhaps I should have worded the question as to whether anyone personally found a particular therapy unhelpful or made them worse, but I am sure there must be some research out there on outcomes of therapy in autistic people.
Hi, I realise that this thread is over 6 years old. I am also looking for information on the same - people with ASD that have had unhelpful/harmful therapy - did you get anywhere with this?
