Pet Ownership and Autism – webinar

November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Free

Tune in to hear Gray Atherton, PhD’s presentation “They ask no questions and pass no criticism: A mixed-methods study exploring pet ownership in autism,”

About the Speaker, Dr. Gray Atherton
“I am interested in understanding how people with autism spectrum condition see the social world. Specifically, I explore individual differences in social processing and how these differences often found in people with autism also exist in the general population.
I also investigate anthropomorphism, or seeing the human in the non-human, and how this relates to social processing in autism. To investigate this, I am developing virtual reality techniques that allow for anthropomorphic experiences. My other research interest lies more broadly in embodied social processing. I am particularly interested in how movement can affect the way we see ourselves and our social partners, and how this can be used to understand special populations.”
