Parenting, Faith, and Autism
Connections and Disconnections in the Literature
Friday, 7 March 2014 | 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Westchester Campus | Room 116
This lecture will 1) Explore the psychological literature that provides evidence of relationships between various aspects of spirituality, psychological well-being, and raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder; 2) Highlight both the connections and the disconnections suggested in the literature between faith communities, personal faith, and parents raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder; and 3) Suggest ways in which future research may aid pastoral care workers, pastoral counselors, and people in ministry in faith communities who work with parents raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder.
