"Autism and depression are very commonly diagnosed together in young adults. This book is for them.
Katie Saint and Carlos Torres, authors of Awkward: The Social Dos and Don'ts, have created another user-friendly resource by combining the issues and needs of young adults with both Autism and Depression into one workbook. Autism and Depression uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to target emotional regulation skills, perspective-taking, acceptance, independent goal setting, and skill-building related to symptoms associated with depression. This book can be used individually or with a trusted therapist or friend." -- book jacket
