SciNaPPS Seminar: Measuring Empathy in Autism
8 June 2012
SciNaPPS - Science, Neurology, and Psychiatry/Psychology Seminars - presents this free seminar on measuring empathy in autism at the Brain and Mind Research Institute.
Presented by Dr Sander Begeer, from the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney.
Deficient empathic skills are a core diagnostic feature of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
However, the instruments for measuring empathy in normally intelligent individuals with ASD are limited.
Various new instruments and approaches will be discussed, that also highlight the need to specify the definition of empathy.
