Neurodiversity in communication, relationships, academia & life
September 19, 2023 @ 14:00 – 14:30 CEST
We are excited to host a new Coaching in Science Initiative (CSI) Seminar titled:
‘Neurodiversity in communication, relationships, academia & life’
Neurodiversity; to be outside of the category of people who are considered cognitive ‘normal’. But what is ‘normal’ really? And how broadly can we extend the concept of neurodiversity? On a personal level, perhaps it is more helpful to ask ourselves, what neurodiverse traits do I have in general, or in this particular group of people? Could they be different depending on whom I’m socializing with at work and at home?
Applying the CSI coaching model and our core values, we will explore who we are in relation to others, raise awareness of how we are different, learn more about the biology behind our emotional regulation and what to do when we find ourselves in difficult social interactions.
On-site location: Gamma 2 lunch room
Zoom link: https://kth-se.zoom.us/j/65001858940
We will begin with a 15-20 min talk, held in Solna and over zoom. Then proceed with a reflection and discussion held only on-site. We encourage other sites to form watch parties, by listening in together to the talk and then hold their own discussion afterwards. Hopefully seeding many local chapters of CSI.
To help facilitate discussion and reflection, consider the follow starter questions:
Awareness: where do we experience neurodiversity in our lives already?
Analysis: how well do I currently interact with neurodiversity?
Alternative: how can we relate to neurodiversity, in ourselves and others?
Action: how will knowledge of neurodiversity change my decisions going forward?
