Award-winning author Lee Wilkinson's new book presents strategies derived from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), adapted specifically for adults on the higher end of the autism spectrum, to help them overcome anxiety, depression and other mental health difficulties and improve their psychological well-being.

The author takes the best of CBT self-help strategies, to encourage self-analysis, and to help adults on the spectrum make better decisions in activities such as employment or relationships. This self-help guide is written for individuals in the early and middle years of adulthood, with and without a formal diagnosis, who share features associated with autism spectrum conditions. It is also appropriate for adults who recognize their autistic traits, even though they may not have experienced major social difficulties and clinical impairment, but who want to improve their emotional well-being.

This is an essential self-help guide for adults on the higher end of the spectrum looking for ways to cope with emotional challenges, and will also be a useful resource for clinicians, psychologists, therapists, and counselors working with them. Family members, friends, and others touched by autism will find this self-help book a valuable resource as well
