Focus on Emotions lab has been busy these days! Sharing and discussing findings and insights to a broader audience of academics and professionals is important for research. On 24 March 2017, Boya, Anne, Danique, and Tamara presented their studies on autism at National Autism Congress in Rotterdam. Boya and Tamara shared their findings on the development of internalizing and externalizing behaviors in autistic boys, while Anne and Danique talked about empathy in autistic girls.
Meanwhile, Carolien and Sheida were in Vienna, Austria, for the biennial International Convention of Psychological Science (ICPS). Carolien presented new behavioral data on adolescents with communicative impairments in two symposiums. Sheida talked about cultural differences in understanding one’s own and others people’s emotions. The talks were well received and generated lively discussions.
