Imitation in the neonatal phase

Imitation has long been assumed to occur from birth, with influential theories  placing an innate imitation module at the foundation of social cognition (potentially underpinned by a mirror neuron System. Yet, the very phenomenon of neonatal imitation has remained controversial. Empirical support is mixed and interpretations are varied, potentially because previous investigations have relied heavily on cross-sectional designs with relatively small samples and with limited controls. Here, we report surprising results from the most comprehensive longitudinal study of neonatal imitation to date.

Body language and nonverbal communication in China

Just finished the second workshop of the two years training program at the Shanghai Mental Health Center SMHC. Topic was body language, nonverbal communication and body diagnostics for psychotherapists and physicians.

I also had a two days workshop on the same topic at Tongji University and at New Health in Beijing. A lecture at Beijing Normal University.

All in all impressing how big the interest is in these topics and how motivated the participants were. It mirrors some track in the field of psychology and psychotherapy in China which opens up a forth coming future of great competence.

Family time is marriage conference

“You’ve heard it before, but when we spend time with our parents and relatives, the conversation nearly always comes to the same topic.

“Do you have a boyfriend?”
“Are you looking for one?”
“You’re almost 25. you should get married before 25, otherwise you’ll be a lonely old lady.”

Seriously aunties, don’t you get bored of asking?

If you can find the love of your life…..”

The Most Popular Words Used on Social Media

There is an amazing project forging scientific techniques by measuring psychological well-being and physical health based on the analysis of language in social media. Different perspectives were observed like:

Females from this study (Top), used more emotion words (e.g., excited) and first-person singulars and they mention more psychological and social processes (e.g., ‘love you’ and ‘<3’ –a heart)

Males used more swear words and object references (e.g., ‘xbox’, ‘black ops’, ‘wishes he’).

other perspectives were : Age, personality and so on. Just have a look.
