Have you ever not understood a joke or felt lost in an interaction with someone? Understanding the social context around us is a skill set many of us have without much conscious awareness. When our brain does not take in and process social information in the same way as those around us, it can result in a mismatch within our interactions. In this training, we will explore components of how we socially communicate and, when our brain thinks differently, how that can cause social mishaps or mismatched interactions. At times, the social information can be hidden to us; this training supports educators to provide information around social context and interaction.
This workshop is offered at no cost.
Registrants will receive login information and materials prior to the workshop. Please note, this training will not be recorded.
