Emotional Regulation

A common stereotype is that people with autism are emotionless and lack empathy. In reality, people with autism have very strong emotions and often struggle with emotional regulation. Short video clips will be utilized to illustrate core emotions. The “5 point scale”, developed by Kari Dunn Buron and Mitzi Curtis, will be utilized by the trainers to help the trainees understand and control their emotional responses to various social situations.
