Stress Management During the Holidays Workshop

We all know that the stress of the holidays can be anything but jolly. What if there was a way to navigate and diffuse some of those feelings?

The holidays can be an incredibly stressful time for many of us, including individuals with autism. Understanding stress and how it affects the body is an important step in beginning to learn how to manage it. This workshop will give you a solid foundation of knowledge about stress, will provide insight into the unique challenges autistic individuals face when managing stress, and will provide strategies to support you in navigating the holidays.

The workshop will discuss:

  • Holiday stressors
  • How stress affects the body
  • Strategies to manage holiday stress


This workshop was developed by the Centre for Autism Services Alberta’s Occupational Therapists in collaboration with a self-advocate (who will guide the lived-experience perspective of managing stress). All three presenters are passionate about supporting individuals with autism.
