Hello and welcome to Raising Kids With Autism, brought to you by Wherapy: Therapy – Wherever, Whenever!
In this 4-week course, you will…
gain a better understanding of how a person’s energy levels can change and what to do in order to mitigate the effects of low energy. We will be using the economy as an analogy for our personal energy levels.
Throughout the course, you will hear terms such as Energy Reserve, Energy Profit, Energy Loss, Return on Investment, Deferred ROI, Energy Surplus and Energy Deficit. The course is divided into five categories. During the first week, we will focus on The Day-to-Day Economy of Energy. During the second week, we will look at The Long-Term Economy of Energy. In the week after, we will discuss the term Deferred ROI and in the penultimate week, we will apply The Economy of Energy to depression, burnout and old age. Finally, in the last week of the course, we will revise what we have learnt.
We encourage you to take each lesson at your own pace. There is a lot to learn. Short videos and diagrams are provided to make the information easier to digest. Homework will be assigned at the end of every lesson. Please make the most of the week between sessions by applying what you have learnt and doing the homework consistently throughout the week and not leaving it until the day before.
