This book breaks down the similarities and differences between Autism fixations, obsessions, and special interests. Travis shares his opinions on how the fixations and obsessions battle against the special interest. The negative against the positive. Travis feels he has greater control over what his special interest than what he fixates on. Travis works hard to eliminate the negative fixations.
Travis explains what makes a fixation unhealthy for him. He is constantly balancing healthy fixations with positive special interests. His goal is to make sure the positive special interests win out over the negative fixations. There are occasions where a fixation can be positive if someone is focused on a positive thing but most of the time fixations affect how intently you are focused on something and make the object of your focus become an unhealthy obsession.
Travis shows the reader how to use mindfulness and cognitive behavior therapy to challenge the fixations that are unhealthy by redirecting his thought process to special interests that are healthy for him. Travis says it is all about learning how to use positive energy to focus your attention to avoid the negative energy of the fixation that forms in his brain.
In this book Travis tells you all about special interests, obsessions, and fixations and teaches you how to interact with each of them. If you love someone with autism this is a great book to read to gain a better understanding of who a person with autism is and what their fixations, obsessions, and special interests mean to them.
