Our Work - Embodied Brains, Social Minds

34 teachers attend the half day workshop conducted by Dr Mary Helen Immordino-Yang from University of Southern California on 7 May 2014. In this half-day workshop, the participants explored recent work on the neurobiology of emotions important for healthy social development and morality, such as admiration, compassion and gratitude. Using a cognitive developmental lens, participants understood what emotions are, why we have them, and how emotions are embedded in everything we learn. The participants also discussed about emotions’ deep visceral roots in the feeling and regulation of the body and their neuropsychological ties to the feeling of one’s own subjective sense of self awareness and consciousness. This course also examine cultural and individual differences in emotion processing, and what these differences mean for the role of social relationships and educational experiences in shaping children’s development.
