Understanding the emotional intent of others can be daunting. This is where we get into some of the most common every day challenges that cause the biggest misunderstandings such as "laughing at" vs "laughing with" and "on purpose" vs "by accident".
This we begin a "theory of mind" curriculum, which will work towards developing an understanding of the motivations and intentions of other people. Neurologically, this relies heavily on a class of neuron called "mirror neurons" which activate when we watch another person and play an important role in decoding facial expression.
We will be working on understanding the mirror neuron system, as well as learning strategic ways to gather information using contextual clues.
See you in group!
