Clear and engaging, this book offers a refreshing positive psychology approach to mental health and autism. Moving away from neurotypical views of happiness, it sets out simple techniques to help adults on the spectrum improve their mental health.

Packed with helpful exercises for individuals and groups, it covers topics such as recognising character strengths, dealing with negative self-talk, building communication skills and self-awareness, and forming coping strategies for the workplace. Autistic individuals and professionals who work with them will find flexible and practical solutions to recurring negative thoughts, helping clear the path to a successful and happy future. A must-read for anyone on the spectrum or those who support them.

Exploring autism and happiness is not new, however, this book dissolves the mystery - not imposing a neurotypical view of happiness on autistic individuals is key. Positive psychology uncovers individual autistic dispositions, emphasises strengths and connection to meaning, facilitating happiness that builds into secure and content wellbeing. -- Dr. Wenn B.
