Therapeutic Photography and Positive Well-Being in Autistic People
Researchers at York University (Supervised by Dr. Jonathan Weiss, DDMH Lab) are currently recruiting participants for a new study examining positive wellbeing among autistic young adults engaged in a therapeutic photography intervention. Autistic young people in Ontario, Canada, between the ages of 16 and 25 years with or without intellectual disability are eligible to participate. Participants must have adequate communication skills (in either verbal or written form) and need to be interested in taking pictures. Participants must be able to attend two visits at York University to complete pre- and post-intervention measurements and commit to 4 weeks of photo-taking and weekly reflective journalling. Participants can be assisted by a caregiver throughout the intervention and can be accompanied to both university appointments. Participants will receive a $200 gift certificate per visit (i.e., $400 in total) along with a small prize.
