The Autism Relationships Workbook: How to Thrive in Friendships, Dating, and Love
- By Joe Biel and Dr. Faith G. Harper
Every autistic person is capable and worthy of having happy, healthy, fulfilling friendships and relationships. This workbook takes you step-by-step through getting to know your own wants and needs and engaging with others whose wants and needs are compatible. The result of a collaboration between autistic publisher Joe Biel and Dr. Faith G. Harper, bestselling author of Unfuck Your Boundaries and Unfuck Your Intimacy, this workbook can be completed on its own or alongside The Autism Relationships Handbook. Exercises include evaluating your relationship history, figuring out what you want in your relationships and what steps you need to take to achieve your goal, how to identify someone who's a good potential friend or date, how to express your needs and boundaries, how to hear and respect the other person's needs and boundaries, and how to have relationship building or strengthening conversations.
