Practical Techniques to Work Through Anger, Anxiety and Depression
by Leslie Burby and Mark Blakey
Emotional awareness is not something that we are taught in school and it is rarely even understood by our parents. We live in a society where even those not in the Autistic Spectrum (Neuro-typical Individuals) suffer to some extent with emotional repression and its subsequent side effects. It is not surprising that most with Asperger’s syndrome struggle to get the help, knowledge and understanding to deal with problems with anger, anxiety and depression. Following the creation of the Asperger Test Site, we received a steady flow of questions from people seeking advice following their diagnosis. One of the things we noticed is that it was the emotional aspect of life that people were struggling with the most. Issues around anxiety, anger and depression are quite common for adults with Asperger’s. There is a common misconception that people with Asperger’s don’t feel emotions, but that is simply not true. What is true is that there is difficulty understanding, communicating and dealing with the emotions that are present. This book is intended to give you a better understanding of the emotions that affect those living with Asperger’s syndrome. In writing this book, we deemed first to identify what the problem areas are before looking for resolutions. While we could not cover every single emotion in this book, we have covered the ones that are most problematic. We hope it will provide a powerful reference that you can use to improve the quality of your life.
