“Social being” for kids or adults
“People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!”
Neuroscience indicates that we are social beings, as well as human beings. Therefore, we need to use our social brain effectively, to become socially and emotionally resilient! Find out what your brain needs to survive and thrive, develop your social brain by empowering yourself and developing the best options to connect with all sorts of people.
Many decades ago, when we lived in villages, we communicated with all sorts of people. We used respect and compassion to connect and understood the power of verbal and non-verbal communication skills. The breakdown in family networks, together with the increase in digital technology, has slowly eroded these skills. Evelyn has developed a simple, six step communication skills recipe, the core of her books and her professional work. Find out more about the ‘Model of Relating” and the six secrets can improve all your relationships.
