Mentalization: connect deeper (3-3)
In this 3-part workshop you will learn about mentalization. This is an essential skill if you want to connect with other people. It’s the skill to acknowledge that you yourself and others all have an inner life, and that what you notice on the outside (behaviors, words) does not fully represent that what happens on the inside. It’s not a fixed skill: it can fluctuate between situations and different stress levels. And this is the case for everyone. You can probably relate to situations where you get in an argument with a close other as you filled in their emotions (e.g. “Why do you look so angrily at me?”). In this course you will have the opportunity to improve your mentalization skills, so that you can better respect other people’s experiences and your own.
