The podcast featuring conversations with experts in psychology debuts with a discussion about helping autistic youth learn social skills. “Speaking of Psychology,” an audio podcast series from APA’s Office of Public Affairs, gives the public a chance to hear top experts talk about psychology and how it relates to daily life.
“Teaching social skills to autistic teens,” the first episode of the series, features UCLA psychologist Elizabeth Laugeson, PsyD, discussing a training program that she developed to teach students with autism spectrum disorder skills that help them interact with peers and build lasting friendships.
