Course Description

"I don't understand why my son continues to be violent even though every time he behaves this way, I slap him hard across the face." We clearly recognize this mother's blind spot. When it comes to our own, we tend to believe we are more rational and objective than other people. But we are not! Cognitive blind spots are significant and ever-present challenges in our lives. They interfere in our interpersonal relationships and significantly affect our self-perceptions, often resulting in unnecessary distress. If you are willing to be open-minded, this lecture may raise your awareness of your blind spots and what you can try to do to compensate for them.
